Composed for Xanthos Ensemble, winner of the 2006 Composers in Red Sneakers Composition Competition
Recording by the f(x) ensemble
Pace was composed in 2006 for the Composers in Red Sneakers composition competition in collaboration with
Xanthos Ensemble. The piece features heavily contrasting sections of energetic force and complete stillness.
The slow B section, re-imagined for a later orchestra piece, Slant Apparatus, is grounded in two
pulsing chorales in the piano and marimba that shift in and out of alignment with each other, while lyrical
melodic material passes between soloists.
