PROGRAM NOTE

 

          Written to accompany Rick Roirdan’s “Ship of the Dead,” Navigate and See explores the themes of loss, voyage, and unexpected turn of events as the narration navigates the plunge of the main character into an underwater dinner event. The composition takes on an underscore role to complement and react to moments within the text, creating tension and release to heighten the twists and turns of conversation and observations from the main character, Magnus Chase, and his companions with the host, Aegir, and his nine daughters.

          This piece was written for ETHEL to accompany the narration by Michael Lockwood Crouch for the 2022 TUTTI festival held at Denison University.
