Ensemble, Música contemporánea, Peen State 2022 International Call for Score
Tooth Necklace takes inspiration in the act of consumption (both metaphorical and literal). The
rhythms and timbres are taken from transcribing source recordings of chewing and swallowing and
the resultant texture is orchestrated "hocket-like" throughout the ensemble. The unrelenting nature of
this music creates this image in my mind where the ensemble functions as some imaginary creature or
being that is consuming the audience.
