ENTRANCE

Composer: 
Lawrence Dillon
Instrumentation freestyle: 
narrator, flute, alto flute, vln., vla., piano

Entrance and Exit are framing devices for a chamber concert.

Entrance is about layers of memory and connections to the past: a story gradually unfolds about an audience member whose mind wanders away from the music and drifts back to another time and place.  Her memories of that other world are influenced by the music she is hearing, and, in turn, the music responds to the journey of her imagination.


Each piece is scored for actor and five instruments, although the instrumentation differs.

EXIT

Composer: 
Lawrence Dillon
Instrumentation freestyle: 
narrator, alto sax., C trumpet, cello, bass, piano

Entrance and Exit are framing devices for a chamber concert. Entrance is about layers of memory and connections to the past: a story gradually unfolds about an audience member whose mind wanders away from the music and drifts back to another time and place.  Her memories of that other world are influenced by the music she is hearing, and, in turn, the music responds to the journey of her imagination.

Exit is a quick spin through an entire life cycle, foretelling the future of an audience member as a metaphorical journey from birth to death and beyond.

Each piece is scored for actor and five instruments, although the instrumentation differs.
