Hello everybody, I just wanted to let you know about a new recording on my “Listen” page. Everyone in Civilization Knew Each Other was commissioned and performed by the Chicago Composers Orchestra this June, and I couldn’t be happier with their work on the piece.
A word to the wise, though, the recording starts off very quiet but becomes suddenly very loud – the CCO can pull off some subtleties in live performance that can’t be duplicated by recording equipment!
Also, uberfans might recognize this is the piece about which I blogged. I wrote the work in about three weeks or so, and documented my process as I went along. It’s a quick read, and I hope you enjoy the piece, too!
