Seven Systems - Sam Pluta International Festival of Contemporary Music Warsaw Autumn

is a sequence of seven interlocking movements that unfold over a twenty-minute span. Autobiographical in nature, the work reflects life events that occurred over the relatively long period that it took me to write this piece: a difficult emotional period, my marriage to my amazing wife, teaching incredible students at the Walden School in rural New Hampshire, the death of a particularly joyful former student, jogging along the Spree in Berlin. This piece was made possible by a grant from the Fromm Foundation.
