In a century of unspeakable horrors, Chagall was able to make a new art out of light blue and pink pastels, pastorale scenes with lute playing goats, wafting god-like clouds, floating nymphets, and moon-drenched lovers. Though thoroughly devoid of goats and gods, this piece is an attempt to make a similar music. It uses small sounds, joyful hues, and playful counterpoint arranged in a sea of pastels; swirling and rotating; converging and dissipating.

Tile Mosaic (after Chagall) was commissioned by Yarn/Wire and recorded for their 2010 release, Tone Builders.

Laura Barger, piano
