for harpsichord and electronics

Featuring Ben Katz, harpsichord

This piece is a warped version of a Protestant hymn known as “Old 100th." The original melody never appears in its natural state. Augmented and reharmonized, it is gradually deconstructed through granular synthesis and other effects. The performer and audience members are invited to fill in the parentheses in the title with a verb or expression of their choosing, based on the state of affairs at the time of performance.

This piece is dedicated to Ben, who first inspired me to write for the harpsichord, and then collaborated in the midst of a pandemic to record everything remotely.
