Wake Windows for ensemble and quadraphonic sound (2022)

A wake window is the period of time a baby or toddler can stay awake between sleep cycles.
The form and the electronics for this piece were composed in proportion to my daughter’s wake windows schedule. In this setting, performers react to her voice and movement, following color-cued sound waves as guidance for their improvisation.

Commission for the PRISMS Festival, Arizona State University, 2022.
Premiered on November 2022 by the Arizona Contemporary Music Ensemble. Conducted by Simone Mancuso.
