Premiered by the Rainier String Quartet. Performed by the Armadillo String Quartet as part of their 30th anniversary season in 2011.
The Present Moment was commissioned by Artistic Director Daniel Kepl for the 2005 Santa Barbara Chamber Music Festival where it was premiered there by the Rainier String Quartet. The Armadillo String Quartet subsequently performed it as part of their 30th anniversary season in 2009. The piece consists of one movement of about twelve minutes in length. The title is another of my pieces that makes reference to the idea of mindfulness. Various melodies appear and reappear in different guises, as though reinvented moment to moment.
