A new work for the JACK and MIVOS quartets,

drop - for string octet and strobe lights (2015)
In the novel Agapē Agape, William Gaddis’ interpretation of late capitalism is grounded in the growing resemblance between art and commerce, both of which appeared to him to be thoroughly mechanized. If the juxtaposition of terms, Agapē Agape, suggests the “wholeness” of the prior, collapsing into the latter, then “Drop” explores this deepening gap; it also refers to the dramatic formal device employed in many genres of popular electronic dance music.
