TSPCE-50


Program Notes When I was about 13, my parents converted half of our backyard into an English garden. It is filled with plants, trees, wind chimes, and flowers. It was one of my favorite places to sit during my high school years. In My Mother’s Garden for vibraphone trio portrays the various moods and imagery I have associated with the garden: abundant and active life, calming air, focus on single elements.   The piece was written over the course of three days during the winter of 2006 (revised 2009).  The main theme of the piece is introduced using a bowing technique.  The piece employs minimalist and post-minimalist techniques over which this theme is presented and developed.  In 2009 the piece was choreographed for two dancers by Claire Hancock, which inspired an ongoing collaboration with her and Ashley Bowman of the Art.if.Act Dance Project.
