A BRIEF PORTRAITURE
recorded string orchestra
102 violins
14 violas
4 violoncellos

Sam reflecting on the first time he had heard her sing (2017) was first recorded in the home of Richard Greene in Portland, Oregon throughout the Fall of 2017. All recording, audio production and instruments were performed by Greene.

Each part is tripled, recorded three times over, to give further clarity and showcase the intentionality of an individual line accounting for a total of 360 strings in its fullest state. The recording is presented in a double canonic form: amassing panned left and right parts simultaneously. The piece is presented first in its entirety, tutti, then gradually realizes its construction over the duration of the recording, top (part 60) to bottom (part 1). Each part is introduced with a maximized decibel level that gradually reduces to accommodate for the following parts introduced.

for Luz, with her beautiful voice...
