Amble Tableaux

for guitar, double bass, and percussion, 2001, duration: 18 minutes.

Amble Tableaux was composed for my friends and colleagues, Glenn Lyons, Peter Paulsen, and Chris Hanning, at West Chester University.  The work is in one continuous movement of 14 sections. Some sections are Tableaux and some are ambulatory.


Imagine a mythical place where there are several scenes, each depicting in some detail an idea, a story, some characters, etc.  And then imagine that these are all in close proximity to each other and you can “amble” from one to the next with ease.  Then enjoy the journey.
