The award-winning, multimedia hub “I Care If You Listen” has written a wonderful review of Ensemble Pi’s “Reparations Now” concert, where my pierrot ensemble piece “The Pattern,” premiered. Of my piece Jillian Degroot wrote:
“Much like the effect of this startling truth, the small ensemble immediately erupted into cacophony. The violin (Airi Yoshioka) and cello (Alexis Gerlach), followed closely by the flute (Loggins-Hull) and clarinet (Moran Katz), settled into anxious tremolos. Tones bled downward in pitch bends as conductor Raquel Klein sensitively cued soloistic laments from players throughout the ensemble. Moments of hope blossomed before returning once more to chaos—a potent metaphor for the systemic white supremacy enacted on Black Americans since 1619.“
