Agonia for Flute and Piano by Sungji Hong

Duration: 10:00

Dedication: For Anatolia, Elizabeth and Ilana

Extended techniques used : Key, Oscillation, Timbral Trills; Jet Whistle; Quartertones; Shakuhachi Sounds; Molto Vibrato;                                                           Air Sounds

Prepared Piano Sounds:  Mute strings with 1.5 cm size balls of sticky putty and place in various areas per directions to mimic                                                     xylophonic sound.  Photos and directions included with special notation.

Unfolding over an eight-bar repeated pattern in the pianist’s left hand, the piece takes its inspiration from Christ in the Garden, painted by Nikolaus Obilman in 1466 (Warsaw’s National Museum in Poland); in projecting this prayer into physical movement, the choreographer writes that she “creates a meditative landscape exploring moments of women’s resistance, folding and unfolding brokenness, invisibility, and reawakening.”

The music is written for the dance Grounded Orbit in collaboration with choreographer Ilana Morgan. It was performed by dancers Sharon Barnhill and Linda Wallace, pianist Anatolia Ioannides, and flutist Elizabeth McNutt at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth in Texas on January 19, 2019.

It was commissioned by the Sounds Modern.
