The premier performance of the Thoreau Teasdale Cycle.

This piece represents a culmination of my complete compositional voice at this moment.Thoreau Teasdale Cycle is a cycle through a day and through a year as each poem used tackles the topic of seasons or times of day.

Whoa! You did it! Congratulations, Tyler! How marvelous to hear it "for reals". Loving the live vocals...

Enjoy your "afterglow"!

Congratulations Tyler!  I seem to recall this was for your dissertation wasn't it?  It's a marvelous piece of music.


Did the conductor prepare the ensemble or was that up to you?  I loved the use of the harmonics against the glock.  The orchestration at times made the quartet and small voice ensemble sound huge.  Very well done overall.


So, do we call you "Doc Hughes" now?
