Product details

Zoom and Zip (1997) for strings is based on an offbeat rhythm over which clearly outlined melodies are heard. There are no direct quotes here but, like most of my pieces, this piece draws on memories of having heard something as a child in Russia. Zoom and Zip has some of the typical Russian harmonic and melodic twists, especially in the first half.
The main idea behind the piece was this heavy and relentless motion which gives way to a kind of nostalgic and romantic melody. The two materials eventually collide and co-exist at the same time. The title has to do with very small cells being augmented or reduced to their minimum and comes from everyday computer language.
