Wind Quintet in Five (2018)
for wind quintet [ca. 18 minutes]
A sculpture gradually reveals itself from its fundamental stone. Narratives within a book teased out as readers notice the links between a string of words. As music unfolds unto a stretch of allotted time, a complete picture of a piece isn’t graspable from the onset. The “sculpture” of sound progressively becomes clearer as motivic links across large or small temporal gaps create a frame of reference for the listener to explore. Context is king, from the reordering of a few small blocks, a new character can be born.
