about

Trust Fall organizes discrete sound-worlds into a series of scenes that inform each other and ultimately form a network of interwoven approaches to gesturality. Like moss or ivy, the ideas grow together and provide a feeling of continuous intuitive invention. Just as with a very flowing and interactive conversation, the ideas segue smoothly, but continue to move towards or away from primary thematic material.

The different sections focus on different saxophone techniques, like slap tongue, multiphonics, glissando, or different types of air sounds. Whether the result favors calm or surprise, motion or stillness, sonority or noise, the piece flows forward through these ideas in a conversational way.

New Thread Quartet was extremely generous with their time and insight in the development of this piece, offering giant gobs of insight into the most efficient way to communicate the ideas in the piece. So the development was as conversational as the music is intended to feel, and the material is infused with the ideas and conversational nature of how the material developed.
