“glissando i” and “glissando ii” are two realizations of the same score. “glissando i” was performed on a street corner in ridgewood, new york, in june 2020. “glissando II” was performed in washington square park in november 2020.
in july 2020 i recorded “quintet i” in marblehead, massachusetts. “quintet ii” shares this piece’s fingerwork, but calls for different breathwork. it was realized with ella heron, sophia o’brien-udry, story ponvert, and matthew tuggle in february 2021, near the same corner in ridgewood where i recorded “glissando i.” this joyful, friendly occasion was the keystone of the record sliding quietly into place.
