Transpositions is a sonic exploration of the relationship between health and the environment. The work is written for viola, bass trombone/tuba and piano as part of Dr. Spy Dénommé-Welch’s self-directed residency with Native Earth Performing Arts, and performed under the musical direction of Catherine Magowan. An album recording of the work, produced by Unsettled Scores, will be released in 2023.
