Interim, set to the poem of the same name by Lola Ridge, presents the text between two identical, unresolved sections to highlight the sense of being in-between or in transition. The harmony in this piece is mostly created through the use of pedal points (repeated notes) or step-wise movement, allowing for a slower, more gradual harmonic motion. Overall, I want to create a sense of contemplative reflection of the past, awareness of the present, and celebration of the future.
The composer would like to thank the 2016 Glacier View Junior High Concert Choir, director Stephanie Bivins, for there recording of Interim at there end of year concert.
Perusal score available soon
