Absence is written for a Ganassi recorder in G. It is in three sections. I was contemplating absence and what it means in various forms from the divine to the more mundane. I must be an optimist because even though this was originally a solo piece, slowly another voice is introduced by the performer singing and playing simultaneously, and by the end the two voices remain together and are as one. Absence can be played solo and quite rhythmically free, or with a percussionist and more metrically. I have performed this piece with percussionist Tony Lewis playing the udu and llama.
Instrumentation: Ganassi recorder in G and percussion (optional).
Duration: 13 min.
