with their I you your fuse — solo double bass (2016)

The first movement uses rhythms derived from transcribing lines of a poem by Anne Sexton. The rhythms in the following movements are based on excerpts from that text as it is washed off. The diminution of the text functions as both structure and metaphor in the piece.

Commissioned by Gahlord Dewald.
