In and Out (1993) - Belinda Reynolds
for frame drums and oboe
Commissioned by Robert Falvo;
Premiered July 1993 - Adelpi University, Long Island NY
In and Out is a piece for frame drums and oboe, commissioned by Robert Falvo and Alicia Chapman. . The structure of the work rests on the frame drum's opening solo. From it, I extracted the contour and rhythms of the oboe's melody. The result is a weavelike texture in which the two different instruments move in and out of each other's lines.
