Chamber Orchestra (1111.111.perc.pno.strings) – 7 minutes
Night mixes is a short essay on the ebb and flow of small rhythmic phrases accompanying the arching contours of a long lyrical line. The title, Night Mixes, refers to both the nocturnal mood evoked by the music and the formal idea of repeated iterations of the same melody, each time slightly recomposed and slightly altered by the slowly changing accompaniment underneath.
This recording is the Bard Composer-Conductor Institute orchestra, Marcus Parris, Conductor.
