Isolation Canon was written for Cal Poly Pomona’s New Music Ensemble in March 2020, and can be played on any group of 3 or more pitched instruments. Multiple performers play the same part 1 and 2 bars apart, and the single melody unfolds into 3-part harmony.
The vocal part also has an optional text by my partner, Amanda K. Davidson. A line from her writing had been stuck in my head for many months: “For a long time it was just me.” During the pandemic this line took on new resonances that I could no longer ignore.
