Warmth (2023) is a quartet piece that explores the use/symbolization of air through a

dance performance. The theatrics of the piece follow the nuances of a performance from: walking on stage, nerves before, the actual performance, relaxing after, applause, and

walking off stage -- created musically and physically; a performance within a performance. Air, or rather breath, is explored through timbre. It is expressed by actual breathing/voicing, fans, silence, dramatic instrumental effects, and how the body itself moves air. Warmth 

has a mood that can be described as a calm chaos; using a wide range of dynamics,

harmonic clusters, and extended techniques.
