Threads for flute choir (2021)

Threads was inspired by simple Renaissance melodic imitation techniques, specifically “stretto fuga.” I learned about the technique from the YouTube channel Early Music Sources and decided to play with it a little and see what I could make. The end result also draws on my influence from the dissonant counterpoint found in mid-20th Century American symphonists such as William Schuman. I am honored that I was asked to compose this work for the CMU flute studio!
