Cycle Pieces

amplified mixed chamber ensemble

Cycle Pieces (2020)

Cycle Pieces was commissioned by Nonsequitur for the Wayward in Limbo online streaming audio sessions for the month of July in 2020. The composition is a suite in six movements for amplified mixed chamber ensemble. I used a combination of procedural and improvisatory methods to compose Cycle Pieces, which has a limited pallet of bright, upper register sounds. As the title suggests, each of the six movements utilizes some sort of cyclic form.
