quid (with the Titanic and Cage in the background)
For flute, clarinet, horn, viola, cello, double bass, percussion, live video and live electronics (2012).
quid is dedicated to Jordan Nobles.
My work aspires to be speechless, not eloquent, without the urgency of communicating anything. If it expresses anything at all, that is pure character – essence more than intentionality. It manifests potential energy more than activity, relying on its own bare existence. (gm)
