Program Notes

Shiver is composed for the Canadian ensemble Standing Wave based in Vancouver, British Columbia. The graphical score is created with Ocular Scores, it is at once precise and inspirational. There is a simple “visual code” in Ocular Scores that informs the meaning of the shapes.

Having this in mind, the composer hopes that performers will study the graphical score and commit to gestures and specific languages. A live and interactive graphical score will be projected for the audience to see and for the musicians to interpret.


To be premiered May 2022
