First In Flight – New Music for Vibraphone and String Quartet

first“First In Flight” is the title of my new composition for vibraphone and string quartet. I wrote it for vibraphone player Jason DeCristofaro who regularly performs classical music and jazz.

This fast paced and energetic piece is full of colorful harmonic progressions, vibrant melodic lines, playful jazzy riffs, and dreamy soundscapes. If music can be compared to painting, this composition is an explosion of color. The title “First In Flight” is my nod toward North Carolina which has become my new home. The piece will be premiered in Asheville on July 21.
