    birth, death — for obsidian sounding stones, strings, and voice (2017)
    This work was written in honor of the exhibition of Isamu Noguchi’s two sculptures Birth (1934) and Death (1934) being displayed together in the same gallery for the first time. The two obsidian sound sculptures used in birth, death—Untitled (1978) & Sounding Stone (1981)—were created by Noguchi to be played as instruments. This piece may be performed on other stones/objects with the fundamental of E and/or G for the first movement and C-sharp for the second movement. [Download includes live recording and sheet music.]
