Description

commissioned by Mondavi Center for the St. Louis Symphony Chamber Players;

Composer's note:

Both Sides, for flute
doubling alto flute, string quartet, and bass, was commissioned by the Mondavi
Center for the St. Louis Symphony Chamber Playes as part of their “Egg Head
Project”. Each faculty composer was assigned as ‘inspiration’ a particular Robert
Arneson sculpture around the U.C. Davis campus. The pieces have been composed
to be performed in these specific locations.

My choice was to muse upon the relationship between Yin (lying on
his side with one eye closed) and Yang (standing up and embodying a much more
aggressive attitude). Hence the title. During the soft and sensusual beginning
of the piece Yin is clearly evoked, but as the music unfolds Yang comes
increasingly to the fore and remains so as the piece comes to it’s provisional
conclusion.
