Pieces written in two hours or less

High Def (2009) was written for Gil Harel. It's a setting of what he said to me every time he saw me in the hallway at Brandeis: Hey, Davy! The initials of that are HD, hence the title High Def. The joke (it's always funnier when you explain a joke) is that it's a piano piece with obbligato voice. I wrote it between 9:45 and 11:15 one morning. The performers are Gil Harel and Alexander Lane.
