Written for my first doctoral recital, Celestial Harmonies was a fun exercise in experimentation. I approached another graduate student, Allen Morris, about taking high quality photographs of each of the constellations, which he did between Thanksgiving and New Year's Eve in 2013. Upon receiving these photographs, I had staff paper printed on transparency paper and placed the constellation photos beneath the transparency paper and traced out the constellations on the staff paper. These became the introductory sketches for this new string quartet.
Like a solitary photographer gazing up at the night sky, the music is quiet and intimate, but reflects the drama and wonderment of this wonderous phenomenon.
