1. Glimmer (2010)

From the recording Kathryn Woodard (composer)

<p><em>Glimmer</em> was inspired by the poem by Anne Sexton, <em>The Fury of Rain Storms, </em>and a key phrase in it, &ldquo;Light up the Cave.&rdquo; The &ldquo;glimmer&rdquo; of dissonances, harmonics, bowed crotales, etc. develops into longer phrases and more activity, but the theme of shimmering light is held throughout with recurring gestures. The score implies a basic pulse, but the meterless scoring leaves room for a freer interpretation of timing based on responses among the players.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p>
