Tension Studies

commissioned by The Living Earth Show
scored for percussion, electric guitar, live electronics
duration ~22'
first performance November 8, 2010 | Sprague Hall - New Haven, CT

note Perhaps the most transparent ‘tension’ in this composition is the guitarist’s revealing of the bass line by the gradual detuning of the instrument. However, the primary concern of the work is the physical acoustic tension between the dominant and the tonic.

This work is dedicated to Paul Dresher.
