Composer note
Parallel Play was commissioned for Allison Loggins-Hull’s New Music USA-sponsored project Diametrically Composed, which asked five composers who also happened to be mothers to compose music about motherhood. The hardest part about motherhood for me is the letting go: embracing the vulnerability. I think this is true for my children, too, just in a different way. Parallel Play sets a dreamy, restless melody in the flute atop a grounded, supportive foundation in the piano, but in two slightly different harmonic worlds. These parallel narratives pull, play, and chafe at one another — sometimes teasing, at others, imploring — in search of something approaching grace in vulnerability.
