New Piece is Done!
Last night I worked out the bowings, added articulation, rehearsal numbers, and dynamics, and finished the new piece! All that's left is a title and I have plenty of time to think about that. My original thought was "Nairobi," but it's such an evocative title that I might want to save it for a more dramatic composition. Also, Kenya is in East Africa and this new piece is inspired by West African drumming. With all the cross-rhythms and pizzicato going on at once, maybe something like "Mosaic" or "___ Mosaic" would be good. "Tapestry" also crossed my mind.
