Hole in the Floor

$30.00

Duration:

Instrumentation: Cello Quartet

Instrumentation: Cello Quartet
Delivery Method: Physical Delivery
Performance Materials: Score and Parts

Hole in the Floor was written during the final week of my 2-week residency at the Weekend of Chamber Music festival as an immersion fellow. During our second week of the program, all six immersion fellows stayed in a spacious bed and breakfast in the Catskills mountains called The Jeffersonian. Being one of two composers, and the only non-performing composer, I found that most of my days were spent listening to the other fellows practice. I wrote this piece in search of a quieter, peaceful, one-ness of sound, and the work is named after a small hole in the floor of the kitchen of The Jeffersonian. After seeing the hole, I immediately felt that the title “Hole in the Floor” perfectly described the essence of my almost completed piece.

The work has subsequently been performed many times by the cello quartet, Hole in the Floor, which is, by proxy of naming their quartet after my piece, also named after the hole in the floor of The Jeffersonian.
