Sound Clouds (Elegy for Earle Brown)



This is the sixth piece in my Elegies series, pieces written to honor composers who have most heavily influenced my work. The work is written in open form to honor Brown’s important contributions to composition and notation.

I began composing this piece in 2006 and completed it in 2013, making Sound Clouds the piece which took the longest to write.
