QUIVER

2018

(Piano, double bass, and drum set) 8'

Programme note

 

to quiver is to tremble with fear or emotion.

it is also a case for arrows.

 

i wrote this piece during a time in which i realised that

every woman i have ever known has been sexually harassed or assaulted.

 

this piece is for every woman and girl who has felt afraid and who has turned —

   or who will in time turn —

that fear, anger, and distress into

a case for arrows.
