for Clarinet, Bassoon, Trumpet, Trombone, Percussion, Violin, and Double Bass (L'Histoire du soldat instrumentation)
Duration: 7 minutes
Commissioned and Premiered by Exceptet
Lag was commissioned by the Brooklyn-based ensemble Exceptet in the Winter and Spring of 2015 for their first season. Lag comes from me wanting complete control over something - wanting the players to not really be humans, or not really have any individual qualities to their sounds, but for each instrument to be oscillators in a large, chamber-music synthesizer.
Recording appears on Small Works
