Senescence Music

Performed by Ethel

Senescence Music was written in 2008 as part of ETHEL's collaboration with choreographer Annie-B Parson. The term senescence refers to the process of aging in plant leaves. When I wrote Senescence Music I had in mind the image of a leaf slowly turning color. The piece begins in early autumn and ends in the dead of winter. Senescence Music was premiered in December, 2008, as part of ETHEL and Annie-B Parson's Wait For Green.


Performed by Ethel

Lighthouse is a bittersweet groove in three sections. To me, the image of a lighthouse conjures feelings of both loneliness and hope. Lighthouse was commissioned by the fusion ensemble NurseKaya and received its first performance from that group in August, 2004.
