“Stasis and motion; weight and weightlessness; pulse and impulse: these are the materials of Anima.  Two heavy downbeats, immobile; a stream of offbeats takes flight, forever in motion.  The reverberation of a bell hangs in space, suspends time: Anima delves into that reverberation, into that moment between moments, and explodes the lingering sonority into a world of rhythm and texture.  The silence roars with life; the interval of reflection is filled with vivid experience, with wonder and shudders of awe.”

Theodore Wiprud

Performed by Talujon, Aaron Copland School of Music at Queens College, Brooklyn College Conservatory of Music, University of Oregon School of Music, Purchase College Conservatory of Music, and more, Anima is an engaging ensemble piece fit for any advanced group.
