Erhu and Piano
Laurie Radford

The title may suggest that this piece takes as its reference and point of departure the meeting of a thousand year old Asian string instrument with a mechanical instrument that arose from the industrial revolution of Western Europe in the nineteenth century. The combination of ehru and piano is indeed an interesting cultural pairing, but is actually only one of many such meetings between instruments and practices from around the world as the musics of the world collide and cross-pollinate as never before. The title All Over The Map really describes the compositional process wherein an attempt to embrace a dis-integrated approach to musical materials and concepts is undertaken: from the frenzied asymmetrical pulsation of the opening, to the scattered arabesques of the central section, from the acceleration procedures of the third section to the static chorale-like conclusion.

All Over The Map was commissioned by Nicole Li and Corey Hamm.
