save for later

This piece was commissioned by and is dedicated to Matt Palmer, whose artistry was one of my main inspirations for this work. During the composition process, which took place in the winter and spring of 2013-2014, I was deeply affected by the events in Kiev, Ukraine. I hope that, in some small way, this piece will help preserve the memory of the ultimate sacrifice made by The Heaven's Hundred, as the slain protesters came to be known. May their sacrifice not be in vain!

I am grateful to mention here that the funds for the commission were raised through a successful Kickstarter campaign. In total, 71 people from all over the world backed our project, most notably Anonymous, Dale Bynum, Bob Makowski, David Palmer, Freddie Palmer, Kolya Panhuyzen, Dave and Pam Reynolds, Victoria Thomas, Tucson Guitar Society, and Aaron Walter. Matt and I thank you deeply for all your support, and for making this project possible.

"Brilliantly weaving together the sounds of… rural and religious tradition with those of anger, civil disturbance, people's desperation and the destruction of innocence, this Chaconne-sized piece releases encroaching patterns of chaos which proceed to overwhelm its own underlying structures.
This is a grim metaphor for the plight of the Ukraine.
I also think that what we heard here is the birth of a new major work, important in its way as Picasso's Guernica."
