Additional Information

Shadow of the Words was commissioned by the ETHEL Foundation for the Arts, and was premiered by the New York based string quartet, ETHEL at the Tribeca New Music Festival in New York City. 

I wrote Shadow of the Words specifically with the musicians of ETHEL in mind. I hope that the music combines both playful qualities with earthy dissonant passages that they can dig into. The text that comprises the tape part is 'Harmonie du soir' (Evening Harmony) by Charles Baudelaire, and is read by my dear friend and wonderful luthier, Bruno Guastalla.
