*written as part of FM

Noir  (2024) is a companion work to the first piece I ever wrote, Gray (2018), composed for

5 flutes. Movement 1, Salvo, is a "rewind" of Grayusing material from the original

piece as a recount of the main story. Movement 3, Ember, is a scene from mvt. 2 of 

Gray, "The Preparation". Soldiers are sitting around a campfire, are alerted by a siren,

and ending in a scramble to prepare for battle. Ember is a graphic score. The work in its entirety is full of chromatics, tremolos, extended techniques, and calls for independence from the performers, allowing for a texture that is heavy, flowing, sinister, and dark.
