About the Music
While I was composing Liquid Sings, I was thinking about different pairs of contrasting ideas. The piece is, in part, my attempt to create a musical space for the play between these pairs, some of which include stable/unstable, vocal/instrumental, metered/rhapsodic, chalumeau/clarino, modal/intervallic, and communicative/aphasic. Both local and structural aspects of the piece display these contrasting ideas.
