'Apologies, I Am Here Now' (2016) to be performed at VIPA Festival 2016, in Valencia, Spain by [Switch~ Ensemble]
A new work of mine 'Apologies, I Am Here Now' (2016) will be performed at the 2016 Valencia International Performance Academy and Festival this July. The piece was one of nine works written for [Switch~ Ensemble] following an international call for scores and proposals as part of the ensembles residence at VIPA.
Program Note: “Apologies, I am here now” was a phrase that stared back at me from an email sometime in 2015, or possibly 2014… it doesn’t matter. In essence it meant very little, merely an acknowledgement of availability by the sender in response to an earlier missed call. Yet, in an instant I forgot this context and the phrase took on an almost crushing intensity. And then, almost as suddenly, it didn’t.
'Apologies, I Am Here Now' will be performed alongside works by VIPA faculty members Rand Steiger and Stefano Gervasoni, commissioned composers Timothy McCormack and James Bean, and eight other young composers selected by VIPA and [Switch~].
