ABOUT THE PIECE:

For two vibraphones and glockenspiel, Glow explores the similarities and dissimilarities between these instruments, inhabiting a delicate sonic space where sounds shimmer softly. Time moves at a comfortable pace, allowing resonance to float upwards and fill the air. The vibraphones and glockenspiel meld, the players eventually switching to hands for Glow’s soft, gossamer landing. Dave worked closely with Duomo in arranging Glow for duo and is grateful for their extraordinarily high level of musicianship and professionalism.

ABOUT THE PERFORMERS:

Emily Strachan is currently an undergraduate student studying Percussion Performance, under Ji Hye Jung, and Entrepreneurship at the University of Kansas. At the age of ten, Emily started studying music and percussion in Minnesota. Her performance experiences range from house concerts, to master classes featuring world-renowned percussionists, competitions, orchestra concerts and world premiering at Carnegie Hall. Throughout Emily’s variety of performances, collaborations, projects, and recordings, she has found it most rewarding to bring chamber music, solid percussion fundamentals, and contemporary music to the Midwest. Her mission is to bring current music trends and ideas to schools and local communities, specifically through teaching and performing. Emily’s percussion duo, Duomo, executes her mission and vision of percussion through commissioning chamber music by living composers, and performing these works in schools, art galleries, museums, and concert halls.

Ashley Tini is a versatile performer and collaborator who especially enjoys promoting collaboration within music communities. Ashley has premiered dozens of contemporary solo and chamber pieces, performing at venues ranging from The Stone to Carnegie Hall. As a global music advocate, she has researched the traditions of West Africa, South America, Italy and the Balkans. She believes that the language of chamber music across cultures can inspire the development of new music paradigms. Ashley has worked with noted composers Steve Reich, Pauline Oliveros, Michael Torke, Susie Ibarra, Matthew Welch and So Percussion, and has recorded for the Naxos, Ecstatic, Constellation, and High Two record labels. Together with percussionist Emily Strachan, she regularly performs and commissions new work through their chamber-duo; Duomo . Ashley holds a Bachelors of Music in performance from The University of Kansas, where she studied with Ji Hye Jung.
