Download “Ice” Score
For 10-string guitar (Yepes tuning,) written in 2012 for Jouni Stenroos, four movements, ca. 11 minutes.
I. I Split the Rock, II. And Calm the Sea, III. I Steal Your Light, IV. And Leave.
I was a bit apprehensive when Jouni commissioned me to write for the 10-string guitar. I figured I already have enough trouble with only six strings! But the Yepes tuning really opened up a whole new world of tonal possibilities, and writing for the instrument was liberating and something of a revelation. I hope I get more opportunities to write for it.
