Program Notes

Inside began with a sound sample of a sigh. When you take a recording of a person sighing and slow it down about 400 times, a really beautiful thing happens: you can no longer hear a gradual descent so much as different pitches and overtones of the human voice slowly melting into one another. You don’t really perceive the change you are experiencing until it has already happened. I drew inspiration from this phenomenon for Inside by slowly cross-fading moments into one another, and by branching multiple layers from a single voice until the piece is enveloped in its own texture. I learned that, by zooming in on a single human expression like this, you get to see a whole new perspective on a person’s ability to express emotion.

Inside was commissioned by Tyler Austin for the 2018 Maryland Wind Festival.
