Product details

This piece was originally composed during a time of media frenzy over America's initial attack on Iraq. Snow was falling in Princeton, physically trapping me in a tall apartment, while my connection with the outside world at the time - the TV - projected sensational stories and graphic images of far away places in turmoil. Gradually, I had this sense of becoming numb, as weather and war preyed on a creeping awareness of my incapacity to act in any tangible way. So, the music that emerged has a certain physicality, born of frustration and a sense of disenfranchisement: it is music rooted in the body, and composed for the body - dance-like, of heartbeat, breath, and sigh - a way to 'voice' when I couldn't speak. Snapdragonetto is the shortened, solo version of a work for saxophone and percussion, titled Snapdragon (2003).
