All in a Day’s WorkPosted: July 26, 2012
Written in 2011 for NYC Duo, four movements, ca. 10 minutes.
Guitarist Michael Gilsinan asked for music that evokes the busy life of a musician in New York. I had recently visited the city, and I was able to draw on some fresh impressions as well as memories from my former life as a gigging musician. In the second movement I tried to capture the feeling of the big city melting away as you travel to Queens, and the third movement was especially fun to write, and is especially evocative for me.
