Program note: murmurations is inspired by shifting clouds of starlings at dusk. This textural piece incorporates quintessential musical influences that have shaped me, improvisation, fixed media and live processing. This work is dedicated to Jacob Richman to commemorate our upcoming marriage, and to my father, Kenneth Volness, who passed away unexpectedly during its creation.
