Program Note

Wind in Spring (2010-2011) is the third in a series of works for different instruments and electronics.  All of these works use the same electronic techniques and explore nearly identical structural progressions.  The first two pieces – “…wash yourself of yourself” (2009-2010) for piano and electronics and From Silence, I Rise (2010) for zheng and electronics – use open notations that allow the performer great flexibility in realizing the material.  Wind in Spring, on the other hand, is notated with far more attention to specific details.

Wind in Spring was composed for flutist Carla Rees and the rarescale duo.  It was premiered and recorded by Carla Rees, with the composer on electronics, in February 2011 at the University of California, San Diego
