for cello and live electronics

“Trefoil Knots (総角)” (2014 – 15) is the second work in a series of four works based on the ancient Japanese novel “The Tale of Genji.” The last three works of this series, of which this is the first, are each based on one chapter from the final third of the book – often referred to as the Uji Chapters. Rather than directly drawing narrative from these chapters I am more interested in reflecting on the complexity of the crossed relationships and consistently denied passion in these chapters.
The work is my second piece for cello and electronics for cellist Jason Calloway. It was premiered at the ISCM New Music Miami Festival on January 29, 2015.
