EVERY MORNING, A HISTORY
Every Morning, A History was composed in short phrases over the Fall and Winter of 2005-06. I was very interested in forgetting the material I had written the day before so I could start from scratch as much as possible. When I finally stitched all of the material together, I discovered that the quick and continual passage of each short section into the next creates a dramatically shifting context from which to understand how all of the phrases relate to each other. When change is in abundance it becomes a stabilizing force.
This piece was recorded and released on Peacock Records.
