    A beautifully lyrical & nostalgic middle section is flanked by two groovy sections in this trio for 2 flutes and marimba. One might even think of this as more of a duo, with the two flutes combining to achieve what is possible on just one marimba.

    Program Notes
    Trio for Two Flutes and Marimba was commissioned by Keegan Sheehy and premiered with flutists Sophia Ennocenti and Savannah Clayton at Ithaca College in November 2012.

    The idea for the work arose after hearing a beautiful work by my former teacher and mentor, Gordon Stout, which also utilized two flutes with percussion instruments. The three involved instruments do not necessarily function as a trio, but more of a duo, with the two flutes combining to achieve what is possible on just one marimba. The opening and closing sections are meant to be primarily groove-based and dissonant, while the middle section is more lyrical and nostalgic. I composed this piece shortly after graduating from Ithaca College and moving away from a place I called home for five years, and the middle section is intended to represent the feelings associated with such a time. Otherwise, the work carries no programmatic elements and is simply music for the sake of music.
