MIDI realization

This We Have Now was commissioned by Clocks in Motion as a part of the Clock Shop Composer Residency, and was premiered at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas on the Nextet series March 2020. The title is from a quote by Rumi:

“This We Have Now is not imagination. This is not grief or joy. Not a judging state, or an elation, or sadness. Those comes and go. This is the presence that doesn’t.” – Rumi

This We Have Now, featuring the electronic MalletKAT, will be featured on their new album and released by Aerocade Music Fall 2021. 

*The MalletKAT part can also be performed on another keyboard instrument, such as the hammered dulcimer, synth, or modifications might be possible to fit another pitched mallet instrument.
