Composer Note:
Glamour Sleeper is not a concept piece. It simply is itself, though the title hints at many possible meanings that are related to the splintered, festering material of the piece. I thought of each germ of material as being like a little sleeper cell waiting to erupt. Many small ensembles have asked to play this piece and so I’ve ended up making a number of re-instrumentations to suit forces at hand. The version that you will hear tonight is based on a re-instrumentation of the piece that I made for the German group Ensemble Integrales, so as to fit their instrumental set-up. I now prefer this version to the original instrumentation.
