The ensemble will be performing my 'Reflections on Water'. The peice 'Reflections on Water’ is an attempt to combine unmeasured chant with unmeasured improvised lines which are meant to imitate the rhythms and pitch patterns of streamlets of water. The luminous chords in the second half of the piece are analogous to moonlight or lamp light reflected off of lakewater. The premises this peice was conceived during a number of nighttime walks around the little lake beside Norris and Annenberg Hall.
