First Performance
23.5.2016, NY Phil Biennial, 92nd St Y, New York, NY, USA: Jack Quartet

Score and parts on special sale from the Hire Library

Programme Notes
Each movement explores a distinct quality of the human voice, from the breath of harmonica blues to a gospel singer’s melodic thread to vocal cadences in hip-hop. The title comes from a quote from Ralph Ellison about the perception of music. It has been a great joy to collaborate with the JACK Quartet for several years, both as performer and composer.
Derek Bermel
