A Waltz in 4/4
“A Waltz in 4/4” was composed by transposing the rhythm and sequencing of two traditional Appalachian fiddle tunes, a waltz and reel, utilizing flatfooting as the primary instrument leading the composition. This work asks the audience to visualize the soundscape of embodiment as it grapples with the labor of the rhythm. Through a practice of duration and repetition the foot scraps, digs, and pulls shape into sound.
