Daniel In Chicago (2017) for alto flute, melodica, and percussion (for Daniel Hymanson)

score

Daniel in Chicago (2017) was written for a friend, the documentarian Daniel Hymanson, whose singleminded, near-pious commitment over the last six years to his practice has manifested in an isolated and simple life. I have found great beauty in his reverence, and hoped to find something of this spirit by combining limited materials in canon in this piece.
