Notes

    A Curious Passerby At Fuʼs Funeral (2015)
    This multi-movement work for large ensemble is a dramatic composition that inhabits a
    highly charged emotional landscape. Commissioned by Owen Underhill and The
    Turning Point Ensemble, it explores extreme ranges of heightened activity.
    The first movement surges forward with virtuosic exchanges between the piano and the
    percussion. In the second movement, the calmness of the sho-like section is interrupted
    by a forceful musical ʻincident.ʼ The movement ends with a peaceful musical moment
    that suggests a night sky filled with stars.
    The final movement, inspired by Asian drumming, drives to a propulsive, climactic close.
