COSMIC LOVE II


COSMIC LOVE II is a meditation on one tone, C, played in different octaves, dynamics, articulations, and in different combinations of instruments.  The piece is nothing else but sound, experienced with richness and complexity if we give it our quiet presence.  It follows Cosmic Love I, also based on just one pitch, G, written for Terry Riley's 80th birthday celebration last year in San Francisco.  COSMIC LOVE II is dedicated to my friend Isihije Rogic, who in 1991, on this day when the piece has its world premiere, May 21st, joined the brotherhood of Kovilj Monastery in Serbia.
