Dusk and After Dusk

2016

“Dusk” and “After Dusk” are two a capella pieces I wrote for the Utrechtse Studenten Cantorij (www.uscantorij.nl), a wonderful choir which offers young composers the chance to write new music for choir. The pieces were written for their concerts going by the name of “Twilight Zone”. After I wrote “Dusk”, they asked me to write a sequel, which became “After Dusk”. Whereas “Dusk” is about the relative peaceful side of twilight, “After Dusk” is a take on the darkness of night in a more harrowing and percussive way.

Performed by the Utrechtse Studenten Cantorij led by Fokko Oldenhuis.
