Movement I - Suspended
Movement II - Voices
The two movements of "In Time" represent two different ideas related to the concept and passage of time. The first movement, "Suspended", is a yearning for pause, while "Voices", second movement, is a recognition of that which has gone unnoticed by (or faded away from) our perception. The two movements utilize musical materials which are comparatively quite different in terms of harmony, expression, and timbre; this was my deliberate attempt to differentiate the two overarching ideas from each other. However, a melody first heard by the oboe and clarinet in the first movement occurs throughout both pieces, weaving in and out of other expressions. "In Time" was written in 2011 and 2012 while I was studying with Dana Wilson at Ithaca College in New York.
