The Time of Rivers is a long cycle of works that are for various instrumentations and ensembles. Each of these works contain a number of "moments" which I have tried to transcribe in notebooks during my frequent hikes in rivers across the Northwest as a flyfisher. This piece was commissioned by my colleague, the virtuoso flute player Paul Taub, for an amazing ensemble of performers in Seattle. The 15 Moments assembled here are meant to be performed in any order.
