Drought (2014)

for marimba & bass trombone​

ca. 10'


Composed for Taylor Fong and Tyler Tsunekawa, Drought aims to draw attention to the calamitous dry-spells that have been hitting California, my original home. Scientists overwhelmingly agree that changing weather patterns caused by man-made climate change are the primary cause behind this drought. It is the latest manifestation of our civilization’s failure to protect the planet, our only habitat, for future generations. The piece attempts to evoke the beauty of the natural world, a downward spiral into its exploitation, and finally, a solemn picture of the current situation.  (RS)​
