I was very happy to have been invited to compose a new work for David Schotzko and Pemi Paull. I always like to think about new combinations of instruments. For me, viola and vibraphone are a natural fit, as their range is so compatible, yet they have so many characteristics that set them apart. My approach to this interesting pairing was to think of their parts as co-existing melodic lines (a cantilena is a smooth and flowing melodic line). I am grateful to them both for their interpretation of my music.
