Standing Waves

Standing Waves was the first piece I composed for Wet Ink Ensemble. When I wrote the piece I had been making many recordings of ensembles. A sonic element that came to the fore for me was the size and acoustic of sonic spaces. I imagined a piece were the size and shape of the room was in constant flux, expanding and contracting. Standing Waves is an orchestration of this idea.

Meighan Stoops, bass clarinet
Alex Mincek, saxophone
Matt Hough, electric guitar
Eric Wubbels, accordion
