attempting to stretch (june / july 2021)

for solo viola

Attempting to Stretch is a meditation on slow movement and large interval melody. The notated fingering is only a suggestion — experiment with finding the notes on other parts of the instrument's body, change the strings tunings to find new configurations. Despite the distant melodic intervals, the transitions between notes should remain as smooth and connected as possible unless marked (𝄒).

Go slow, contemplating and concentrated as if breathing, as if the connection of fingers to instrument is your whole body transitioning through poses. This is music to stretch with, to slowly start moving.

pulling moods (2020 / 2021)

for solo viola

Pulling Moods is an experiment in interpretation and communication of changing duration. The piece undulates between tension and release, shifting between speeds and weights.

There is a push and pull of phrases that create fluctuating and abrupt moods. The extremities of the lilt relies on the performer's interpretation of the text-based expression and technique markings that allow the rhythmic notatation to remain simplified.
