FRACTURED FRAGMENTS 2017-2018: piano, drumset, fixed media
A character piece, Fractured Fragments combines pre-recorded and processed acoustic sounds resembling water and coins with a piano and drum duet to examine and explore jazz influenced idioms of harmony and rhythm. Through the course of the piece, the recorded elements merge with and eventually envelope and overwhelm the acoustic elements. In the second movement elements are re-contextualized, though the preceding fixed media track remain exactly the same with the exception of the opening. I conceived and partially composed Fractured Fragments while visiting Changchun, China in July/August of 2016. Type your paragraph here.
Fractured Fragments has been performed at NYCEMF 2018, NSEME 2018, and New Music DePaul 2018
