Gristle is unique among my current works in that it is not inspired by the environment, politics, or social issues. Instead, my goal was to capture a raw and gritty form of pure energy. The title “Gristle” serves several purposes: it represents that the piece is made up of connective materials that tie together the ‘meatier’ parts, it sounds a bit edgy (like the music), and it completes a pact I made in 2012 with fellow composer Dan Harrison to use ‘gristle‘ as a piece’s title.
