Program Note

A ‘glitch’ may be defined as a sudden, usually temporary equipment malfunction or irregularity, and it also means to suffer from such a malfunction or irregularity. In Glitch, my primary goal was to create a fun, highly rhythmic piece with lots of twists and turns, using a few extended techniques to emulate glitches in the musical tapestry. Each glitch interrupts the current section a couple times, triggering the next section. Glitch was commissioned by Joseph Rebman.
