Coat Room (2010)
Octet (performable as one or more simultaneous duos): violin duo, clarinet duo, tuba duo, accordion duo. Commissioned by the Machine Project, Little William Theater | Festival of New Music at the UCLA Hammer Museum.
Coat Room is a short piece commissioned by the Hammer Museum. Performable as an octet, it was conceived foremost for presentation by duos (of violin, clarinet, tuba, and accordion) inside a coat room cleverly transformed into a concert hall—complete with a (minuscule) stage, basic lighting, and modest seating (for precisely two audience members). Listeners queued up in the lobby and entered the “hall” on the minute to hear thirty-second performances.
