Instrumentation: For 3 Performers and Bell Tower
Ensemble: BrainTrust Trio
Year Composed: 2012
Music for Sweeney Chapel was written over a three-week span of rehearsals in Sweeny Chapel by Michael Henson, Brian Spickelmire, and Matthew Kennedy. The work is an improvisation and invention on a key expectation: three minutes into the performance a 100 foot tall bell tower would commence to chime on the pitch of F. Wishing to utilize our respective timbral spectrums, the performers explore the notions of ensemble and soloist.
Music for Sweeney Chapel was written for and premiered in the Sweeney Chapel at Christian Theological Seminary, April 2012.
