Spring Day Notation

Created after a spring walk on a trail through wildflower meadows in Northern California, Spring Day Notation is a miniature pastoral, a bouquet of words, written in the spirit of flowers presented to musicians. In this case, the bouquet is for Medici court composer Alessandro Striggio's magnificent Missa sopra "Ecco si beato giorno" and for the musician who discovered and recreated it, U.C. Berkeley Professor Davitt Moroney.

Spring Day Notation premiered at the author's retrospective at the Electronic Literature Organization Conference, June 20-23, 2012
