The Dartmouth Orchestra performs my 2015 piece: When the World Changes Around You
program notes:
I have always been fascinated by perpetual motion in nature: the waves of the ocean, the earth’s orbit, the beating of the heart—particularly by its inexhaustibility and consistency despite external change. Change, in itself, is in a constant state of perpetual motion, and throughout the duration of one’s life, much of the change we experience is beyond our control. When the World Changes Around You mirrors this fascination through the use of ostinato. The orchestra’s ‘heartbeat’ – or ostinato – remains constant throughout the piece regardless of changes in time and feel. Adjustments have been made to the notation of the ostinato, enabling this effect. By the end of the piece, the sections prove interchangeable as they overlap.
