Flute, Clarinet, Violin, Cello, Piano and Digital Sound
Fast Break! for flute, clarinet, violin, cello, piano and digital sound (fixed media) is one of my Hyper-Connectivism works. The word Connective refers to the idea of disparate parts working together towards a common goal. The term Hyper refers to on the one hand, the edge where great things happen; on the other hand to the point where at any moment, all could fall into disarray, the border right before chaos. “Fast Break” is a basketball term signifying when there is a sudden race towards the end of the court. I wanted to write a piece that could capture the exhilaration of many parts, man and his machines, suddenly working together towards a common goal. Fast Break! Was jointly commissioned by Luna Nova and the Onix Ensemble (Mexico).
