Programme Note
David Lang short fall (2000)
Composer Note:

I wanted to write a piece in which a large amount of effort was expended to go a very small distance. short fall is that piece. Underneath all the activity in short fall the actual notes fall only very slightly. It is as if the surface is so active that the subtle effects of gravity pass (almost) unnoticed.

short fall was written for the pearls before swine experience.

it is dedicated to Lynn Garon.

— David Lang
