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 a chamber musician, solo percussionist, and new music enthusiast. Her performance experiences are rich in variety: radio shows, house concerts, art gallery events, small chamber ensembles, university master classes, competitions, and orchestral performances. Although her training started in Minnesota on the piano, Strachan’s musical endeavors have taken her across the United States. Emily has given solo performances at the MacPhail Center for Music, University of Texas at Rio Grande Valley, Louisiana State University, Southeastern Louisiana University, University of Southern Mississippi, and Hinds Community College. Strachan is most determined to bring new chamber music, solid percussion fundamentals, and contemporary partnerships of art and percussion to local communities. Her best facilitation of this is through her chamber groups. Emily holds her Bachelor of Music in performance and minor in Entrepreneurship through the University of Kansas, under the tutelage of Ji Hye Jung. She is currently a master’s student at Michigan State University studying with Gwen Dease.

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 .
