violas, vocals, synthesizer, percussion
With layered viola, vocals, synthesizer and percussion, Hirondelle reimagines the vast intercontinental migration of the graceful barn swallow and simultaneously summons the expansiveness of a solo bike expedition across the United States. I composed Hirondelle for choreographer Ellenore Scott in the fall of 2015. It was premiered by Scott’s professional semester class from the Broadway Dance Center on October 30, 2015 at Brooklyn College’s Walt Whitman Theater.
Performed, mixed and mastered by Hannah Selin.
