holy the bop apocalypse

for quintet

This composition attempts to develop an idiomatic language for the concert hall based on rhythm, texture, and design. I turned to Allan Ginsberg's 1955 "Notes on Howl" for the title; the beats and bebop, like hip-hop, provide inspiring examples of triumphant idiomatic languages.
