The Bright and Rushing World is a 10-movement suite for Douglas Detrick’s AnyWhen Ensemble (tpt, sax, bsn, vcl, drs) that was commissioned in 2011 by the Chamber Music America/Doris Duke Charitable Foundation’s New Jazz Works program. This concert-length work was completed in August of 2012 and given its world premiere at the Jazz Gallery during the Festival of New Trumpet Music in New York, NY on September 14, 2012. The movement titles are taken from a 10-line poem written by the composer, that is accessible at this link, along with a short essay about the writing of the work. A recording of this work will be released in the spring of 2014 on Parma Recordings’ Navona imprint.

Memorial: To JBC was commissioned by the NOW Ensemble for their residency at Lawrence University, my alma mater. The piece’s spatial notation prioritizes listening as the main form of communication in the work, as players must constantly orient their own parts to everyone else’s by comparing what they hear to what they see on the score.
