Program Notes

blur is an exploration of the blurring of boundries. Blurring the boundries between solo and duet; between consonance and dissonance; between the two instruments; between contrasting musical ideas; and blurring the boundries of expectation.

International award-winning artist Rita Blitt painted a series of paintings based on the piece and created a video that can be projected while the piece is performed live. This is optional, and the piece may be performed with or without the video.

blur was commissioned by the Dinosaur Annex New Music Ensemble (Boston). A version also exists for Bb clarinet and alto sax.
