Darkling Light - 1997

19min

 

 

studio composition for Dancer Anna Levin - featuring Brass Choir, Cellos, Soprano, Jazz Trumpet, Percussion, and Sythesizer

 

  • Premiere: Aug 16, 1997, Buddies in Bad Times Theater,  Toronto/Ontario, FFIDA Late Night Series, Anna Levin - Dance

 

This was my first foray into studio composition.  What is so enticing is the ability to combine any sounds through mixing, creating a very open-ended environment for orchestration.  Multiple recording were made in a variety of locations, and then put together for a single movement work.

 

Influences range from african rhtyhms, miles davis, raga, 16th century counterpoint, and new age.
