Terry Winters, TW078, Untitled (Page), 2011, Graphite on paper

Here is some news from Greenleaf Music director Dave Douglas:

Last few months been working on a new piece for chamber orchestra — the wonderful Alarm Will Sound invited me and will play it. Sixteen musicians and conductor. It’s inspired by the drawings of Terry Winters and revolves around unexpected overlaps and collisions in the display of his work. Shapes taken from science and nature and radically personalized. Never wrote anything quite this way before. The panels are groups of material that can operate flexibly within and without four member teams within the band. It will literally be radically different in each performance. Conductor Alan Pierson will be officiating.

The first reading was on Sunday. Can’t wait for everyone to hear it. Official premiere is in May 2019.
