“Shrotavyasya” is a piece I composed several years ago- thrilled that it’s finally officially released online! The title translates from Sanskrit as “toward all that is to be heard”. It was inspired by a couple of weeks I spent in Bali a few summers ago doing a yoga and meditation retreat, as well as by a huge Balinese gong I heard while I was there. In the piece, two percussionists and the pianist are in front on the stage, while the violin and cello are to the back left, behind the audience, and the flute and clarinet back right, also behind. The idea was to have a triangle of sound coming from three directions, representing the three main Hindu gods (which are represented in the composition, divided into three equal segments). I’m thrilled that it’s finally officially released online, along with some of my other chamber pieces! Here is the premiere with ENSEMBLE / PARALLAX and Ionee Waterhouse’s beautiful video:
