Description

Remnants (of time and space), composed in 2009 for Ryan Fogg, is a single-form work containing seven movements that coalesce into two main parts. Each part signifies the spirit of two laces the composer visited and lived in 2009: Moscow, Russia, and Lake Baikal, Siberia. The first two movements making up Part I of Remnants examine the concept of time as space and as movement. In the third movement, time, as it has been defined within the first tow movements, is interrupted, and this interruption is aural identifiable, as the descending closing gesture of the second movement becomes the springboard into the third movement, Part II explores the fluctuations and changes that occur as time morphs into space and eventually reaches its end. The ebb and flow of time, heard in the fourth and fifth movements, gives way to the blurred boundaries between time and space in the sixth movement. The concluding movement creates a static atmosphere as time runs out. Each movement of the piece was composed using a motivic segment, or “remnant” contained within the first movement. This compositional technique represents a realization of the composer’s philosophy that every place leaves its mark upon those who live in or visit that place, just as travelers and residents leave their mark upon the places they encounter - Carla Colletti
