Liminal

Liminal - ScoreThere exists a period of activity between wakefulness and sleep where the frameworks we use to understand the world around us begin to break down. Liminal (2018) for orchestra explores the concept of in-betweenness from a number of angles, aiming primarily to reflect the psychological behaviors people experience in transitional states. Just as our thoughts can cycle, intrude, drift, or become suddenly focused, musical materials behave in combinations of predictable and unpredictable manners relative to a number of genre contexts.

Liminal was selected for performance in USC Thornton’s New Music for Orchestra contest and was premiered by the USC Thornton Symphony on February 23rd, 2018, conducted by Donald Crockett.
