Title

"A Suite of Insects"

Presenter

Calvin Brigham

Abstract

“A Suite of Insects” consists of three pieces written for solo piano. The suite is based largely on a changing metrical structure, with each piece incorporating compound and shifting time signatures aimed at a cohesive musical texture. Each of the three pieces is dedicated to a specific insect or group of insects. The first piece seeks to represent the seemingly erratic movements of a bee swarm. The second captures a lone moth in its melancholy drifting. The third piece is modeled on the agile, collective movement of a centipede’s limbs. Before this debut suite is performed, I will speak briefly about its conception and my working process in creating it.
