Long Distance (2010)
Last month, on the 31st, french hornist John Dodge performed a recital in Eugene of all new works by Oregon Composers. This performance included the premiere of my brass trio “Long Distance.”
Growing up as a first-generation immigrant to the US, all of my relatives other than my nuclear family were overseas. Spending a lot of time on the phone long distance became a matter of course, talking with aunts, uncles, and grandparents through a grainy, imperfect connection.
Perhaps fittingly, now, during our engagement, my fiancée is overseas, and though we are grateful for the technology, our daily conversations on Skype often lack something and lead to miscommunications.
The whole recital was excellent, and if you’re interested in hearing more, the complete recording is (or will be) available for purchase here.
At John’s request I have deleted the links to the mp3 here, since the whole recital is now available on iTunes
