Invocation for Bassoon. 

Duration

5 minutes 

Description

This is an easy theater piece that was composed during the Covid-19 pandemic of 2020. The bassoonist chooses significant or relevant objects and places them on a makeshift altar and plays to the four realms/directions of Living, Non-Living, Ancestors, and Grief & Joy. The music is very gentle and sporadic, as the player directs attention to the various chosen objects. C5 is the top-most pitch.
