hope was commissioned by New Works Project (formally New Works for Percussion Project. I chose the title to reflect specifically the feelings of a soon-to-be parent for the continued health and well-being of the baby and more generally that we as a society can overcome the shit show of our current administration and get to a better place where all of us can thrive.
hope was featured in NWP’s second Video Performance Challenge. The winner, JR Alberto, collaborated with Four/Ten Media on the above video shoot and release. Originally scored for solo glockenspiel, hope also has an arrangement for solo vibraphone and for solo marimba. Score here.
