Double Basin Sink (composed October 2013) is a chamber piece for small orchestra. Transformative in its colorful and harmonic settings, it is world, cinematic in its orientation, that responds with wit, humour, beauty and vitality.
It is texturally creative, deliciously defiant and rejoicing. Indeed there is plenty to be happy about in this entrancing and eminently dramatic piece. It flows easily and across brief ironic moments linked by savory, remarkably entertaining balances between dark and light. Filled with sometimes tuneful lyricism, sometimes powerfully declartive statements, sometimes broadly comic, and full of rich, opulent energy, this is a light but thoughtful work that can be heard with pleasure, without the fancy design of overarching formidable stylization.
