Written in memory of David MacBride.
Friday, October 4, 2019, as part of the David Macbride Festival at The Hartt School, West Hartford, CT.
I worked closely with David as co-director of the Composers' Ensemble during my time as a graduate student at The Hartt School (2010-2012). We listened to music together, planned concerts, and talked about ideas. He was lucid and idiosyncratic, in the best possible way. What left the greatest impression on me was the depth of his listening - it resounded as clearly and forcefully as the intensity of his expression. In The Utterance and the Space, I have tried to honor this quality of David's by writing as much silence as sound.
