Antithesis: Composition for Chamber Orchestra

Description: Antithesis is a composition, approximately nine minutes long, for chamber orchestra (2 flutes, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 2 trumpets, 2 horns, 1 percussionist, prepared electronic tape and strings). Although not formally divided into movements, there are four major sections, analagous to the classical symphony. The primary thrust of the work is to juxtapose opposing timbres, rhythms, and modes of sound generation (instrumental versus electronic) in ways that lead one to another without formal harmonic or melodic logic.

Dance for Sarah

Description: Recording of Arthur Kreiger's Dance for Sarah. This piece explores a rich palette of electronic sounds - sounds whose timbral elements are in a constant state of flux in contrast to those which appear in a more steady - state fashion - sounds that utilize the upper registers of the spectrum set against those giving emphasis to the bass tessitura - sounds played in the most delicate pianissimo opposing those of a loud and raucous character. The form of "Dance for Sarah" is a modified ternary structure. The middle section closes with a crashing glissando that is followed by silence. A quiet high-pitched envelope emerges from this silence opening the final section of the piece while creating an aural reference to the beginning gesture of the composition. The final section contains a noisy, flamboyant climax. The energy of this climax is soon spent ant the piece gently fades.
