Still Life, 2009 › 2012
    clarinet, violin, percussion | 7:35 | for Equilibrium Ensemble
premiere: Equilibrium Ensemble; May 17, 2012 at Alpha Gallery, Boston MA

n o t e s

This trio is written after Hyman Bloom's last still life painting, from 2009, shortly before he passed away. I try to reproduce the way Bloom's objects transform, recurring gently altered in different parts of the canvas. I am also drawn to the painting's use of gravity and light, which seem to contradict one another, but here combine to potent effect.
