birth, death (2017) — obsidian sounding stones, strings, and voice (2017)
Premiered by The Rhythm Method String Quartet and Alice Teyssier February 2017 at The Noguchi Museum, New York.
Program note: This work was written in honor of the exhibition of Isamu Noguchi’s two sculptures Birth (1934) and Death (1934) being displayed together in the same gallery for the first time. The two obsidian sound sculptures used in birth, death—Untitled (1978) & Sounding Stone (1981)—were created by Noguchi to be played as instruments. The piece is dedicated to Anne Grilk King.
