All Is Now (2021)
a dectet (for 10 players)
Instrumentation: flute, clarinet, horn, 2 violins, viola, cello, doublebass, percussion, and piano
Duration: 24 minutes
All Is Now reflects upon our current moment in time and the importance of relationships and priorities in life – the importance of “now”. It was written during the height of the pandemic, in which the world seemed to be in both a state of upheaval and on pause. The piece moves from hyper-kinetic activity (almost chaotic) to lyrical stasis, with differing tangents in between. It’s a large 24-minute canvas, and was commissioned by Eleanor Eisenmenger for the Chatter ensemble.
