I wrote this piece early in my Graduate work at The University of Akron. It is my first full work based in atonality. Because of the atonal harmonies creating dissonance and a somewhat chaotic sound, I worked to create unity through rhythmic and melodic ideas. To increase variety, there are a number of instances where the three instruments are in extremely chaotic counterpoint and then come together rhythmically to bring order to the chaos. The interest for the players and listeners comes from that exchange between chaos and order.
Flute, Clarinet in B-flat, and Bassoon
