CARRY THE TUNE (2015)
for flute (doubling piccolo and alto flute), violin, and piano. Composed in 2015 for Andie Springer, Katie Cox, and myself. First performances at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 2015 May. 6'
Carry the Tune is a severe fantasy on a melody: the harmonies, textures, and overall shape of the piece spring exclusively from the material of the melody.
I founded Wild Shore New Music, a presenting organization in South-central Alaska dedicated to the music of living composers with my dear friends Andie Springer and Katie Cox. I composed the work to give us something to play together.
