Your Oasis in Space (2021)
Pierrot and percussion
14 April 2021
Boulder Altitude Directive (Carter Pann, conductor)
Grusin Hall, University of Colorado Boulder
Your Oasis in Space was commissioned by the Boulder Altitude Directive for performance in Spring 2021.
Even after its completion, I still have no idea what Your Oasis in Space is about. Admittedly, I got the title from a poster in my living room. I consider the piece to be a sort of miracle. Despite me agonizing over every measure and despite the unhappy year it was composed in, Your Oasis in Space is a remarkably happy piece. It's fast, full of surprises, and generally has a big presence.
