Programme Note
Nico Muhly How About Now (2006)
I wrote How About Now for the wonderful NOW Ensemble as a challenge to myself – how to write ultimately idiomatic music for each individual instrument as well as for the ensemble as an organism. I wanted the piece to feel like it comes from their pre-existing pantry of musical devices – a sort of thrown-together meal with close friends: a can of chick peas here, this mysterious dried mushroom, that jar of cocktail onions, and somehow, dinner happens. Structurally and harmonically, the piece is a comfortable, communal one, and lasts seven minutes.
