An Emergent Suite for Chamber Ensemble
Trigger’s Broom is a composition that plumbs the paradoxes of identity, change, decay, and growth. Soundpainting, graphic scores, structured improvisation, and traditional notation will be re-combined and re-arranged in an open-form, multi-movement suite that will gradually evolve over the course of several performances. Site-specific field recordings from each residency or performance will be recorded and sections of the work will be transcribed and edited. The resulting new material will be integrated into the piece for the next show in a perpetual cycle of composition and improvisation.
This work is made possible with the support of the Con Edison Musicians’ Residency: Composition Program, administered by NYC Performing Arts Spaces, a Program of Fractured Atlas.
