Shepherd’s Pi (2016) – for Ensemble

Pumpkin PiEvery once in awhile, I get the idea to write something a bit unusual. Given the season, I decided to write a piece reflecting my love of pumpkins, pumpkin pie, math, and dad jokes. Inspired by Rzewski’s composition Les Moutons de Panurge, I composed Shepherd’s π for any size ensemble and using a similar process. Incidentally, I once carved a “Pumpkin Pi.”
