Cross Talk (2005/14), for flute and violin.

Program Note

Crosstalk is a term that derives from electronics and describes the “leaking” of one stream of information – such as radio channel broadcasts – into another. It is also used to describe conversation, especially one that strays from the main topic. My musical conception was to use these ideas as a basis for a duet wherein a dialogue of intertwining lines and colors could be explored in a virtuosic setting. The majority of Crosstalk was written while in residence at the Banff Centre in Alberta, Canada during October 2005; it was completed in the summer of 2014.
