My choral piece 'Sing Child' will be performed by Triad: Boston's Choral Collective on June 3 at Church on the Hill, 140 Bowdoin Street, Boston, at 8:00 PM. The program includes pieces by Karl Henning, Thomas Stumpf, Jeremy Faust, Bruce Sled, Harry Einhorn, Oznat Netzer, and Julian Bryson.
'Sing Child' was written for a concert whose theme was 'birth-to-death', and its text begins "birth brightness hunger warmth", and continues with a list of sensations, objects (books, dogs), and activities (running, falling, swimming) that would occupy the mind of a child.
The music is written in a synthetic mode throughout, using melodic cells (like Terry Riley's 'In C') and canons at the unison or octave. The piece has a hazy, dream-like quality, which feels like my hazy memories of childhood.
