This work, in a freer atonality, explores the contrast between metric and ametric time. Each instrument employs diverse sonorities, the bass with double stops and the oboe with microphonics and glissandi. The title, tempio, is the italian for temple, relating to the idea of music as an architecture and as an art: essentially useless. This piece was premiered in Siena Italy by Peter Apps and William Torres.
This piece, in the broadest sense, a set of six variations on a theme. Yet the theme, rather then functioning as a mold for each subsequent variation, is abstracted to a minimum set of components. Each variation reconstructs these components freely, with little regard to their origin. Premiered by David Horne at the annual Thelma E. Goldberg concert, Paine Hall, Harvard University.
