for violin and marimba
Duration: ca. 10'
Post-Diluvian (after the flood) came to mind when working on a piece reimagining well known children’s songs (in this case, The Itsy-Bitsy Spider). I began to ponder the fate of the spider and the trauma they must face in their unending cycle of torture. This reflection creates the two main states of being: a crippled desolation of a damaged arachnid and a horrifying revival of the events in the water spout. Despite the inspirational source material, I would consider this work more of a sensory narrative rather than a programmatic tale.
