Programme Note

Monologue was my first completely graphic work. I was, and still am, interested in how the ways we represent sound delimit what we can do with sound. In this piece, I was interested in the idea of focussing on space and gesture, and how they could exist as a point of focus outside of concerns for pitch, rhythm, texture, etc. I still love Alexander Thumm's interpretation of this piece because, like so much of his work, it went into territory I would never have considered myself but in a way that was conceptually and musically true to my goals for the piece.
