Earthshine (2016; rev. 2018) tenor steel pan and bass clarinet

Written for Duo Rodinia (Jamie Wind Whitmarsh (percussion) Lisa Kachouee (clarinet)

Earthshine occurs when light from the sun is reflected off of the earth and onto the moon creating a glow around the shadowed portion of the moon. In my piece, Earthshine, I tried to emulate that contrast of shadow and light by using extreme register and dynamic contrasts with contrasts of dissonance and consonance and tempo.

Performance: 4/13/18, Oklahoma City, OK; by Duo Rodinia
