Nonet (2020)

Nonet was composed for Ghost Ensemble, a mixed chamber ensemble based in NYC/LA. The pre-compositional task of invisible chiseling yielded many intermittent sounds for Ghost Ensemble to transmit over the course of this performance. The composition uses various instrumental techniques to convey microtonal shadings of pitches and promote Deep Listening.
