Program Notes

X-ING (2012) is the intersection of sound worlds of electric viola (with electronics) and concert band. Along with crossing the sonic palette of strings, electronics and band, X-ING also crosses stylistic boundaries and invites both players and listeners to bring their imaginations and experiences to the table. The title was inspired by road signs such as Deer X-ING, School X-ING, etc.

The three movements characterize three X-ING concepts: 1. Pegasus X-ING, 2. X-ING Over, 3. Double X-ING.

X-ING is a joint commission between the Ridgewood Concert Band and Arizona State University Wind Ensemble. Special thanks to music directors Chris Wilhjelm and Gary Hill.
