Title

Haiku Seasons

Subject

Musical compositions--haiku

Description

Haiku Seasons is a choral work that uses several haiku to portray moments in nature. Spread throughout the performance space, four choirs (SATB, 3/part) depict
larger parts of the pastoral scene (i.e., mountains, the moon, etc.). Soloists depart from the choirs in order to perform solo, duo, trio, and quartet passages, which take place throughout the work. If enough singers are available, individual soloists may be used.
The soloist groups display the more intimate moments of the scenes (i.e., sparrows, a blade of grass, etc.).
The intent of Haiku Seasons is to create an image of nature isolated from human interaction. Thus, the image is a pastoral setting with many independent parts all
coexisting in a relatively silent world. I combine aspects of tonality, time, space, and silence to create this image.
