Over Every Open Field

Piano Trio (flute, clarinet, piano)
Winter 2013
5:00

Premiere
First Performance on March 10, 2013, 1:30 pm by Angel Bradford, Cassie Keogh, and Elizabeth Serine at Fred Jones, Jr. Museum of Art

Program Note
Over Every Open Field was inspired by Ed Ruscha’s painting No Man’s Land, which pairs an outline of the state of Oklahoma with a distended question mark. This leaves the work ambiguous and open to interpretation; I attempted to capture this uncertainty by writing a melody that was questioningly optimistic. This pastoral melody journeys through various treatments before returning to an image of the original iteration, ending with a cryptic unresolved chord.
