"Chrysalis" by Stephen Rothermel

May 29, 2017

I had two wonderful performance opportunities with MODUS this past year premiering "Chrysalis" for saxophone quartet by fellow UT student Stephen Rothermel! We enjoyed the piece so much when we premiered it for the CLUTCH New Music Concert in the fall that we took it on the road with us to the North American Saxophone Alliance regional conference at Oklahoma State University!

Accompanying the piece is the following poem:

the spark of something new

innocuously taking shape,

reaching out, a timid grasp at its own existence.

growing, flourishing, and then

it blossoms,

refashioned from the remnants of its former self

tirelessly, it transforms again and again,

faster and faster,

relentlessly, it distances itself from the past



the spark of something new.
