Violin, oboe, guitar, bass + sampled sounds and voices (18:42)


Handcuffs, metal detectors and slamming cell doors are striking musical instruments, and incarcerated teenagers are the streetwise chorus, in this three-movement techno tone poem for violin, oboe, guitar and bass.

Commissioned by Meet The Composer’s New Residencies with additional support from the Utah Arts Council.

2006 premiere by blue haiku in Salt Lake City, Utah.
