The Howl


flute, ‘cello, piano | contact for score

Premiered by Dead Language on 13 December 2013 at the Church of the Ascension (Brooklyn, NY).

Program notes: Do wolves like chords? The Howl is based on the sounds and musicality of wolves. How can we draw correlation between the cries and howls of wolves to our own audible emotions? What noises do we only make when amongst friends, by ourselves, or in an unfamiliar territory? Based on the album "The Language and Music of the Wolves" narrated by Robert Redford, The Howl chronicles the most basic of animal sounds through the lens of classical instrumentalists.
