about

Alexandra Gardner’s “Ituri” begins as a subdued and mysterious interaction between trumpet, harp, and electronics and gradually builds into a serious of increasingly dramatic gestures between the harp and trumpet. “Ituri” is inspired by a quote that composer Gardner found on the street in Baltimore.

“When bad times befell the inhabitants of the Ituri forest in Central Africa, they assumed that their misfortune was due to the fact that the benevolent forest, which usually provided for all their needs, had accidentally fallen asleep. At that point, the leaders of the group would dig up the sacred horns buried underground, and blow on them for days and nights on end, in an attempt to wake up the forest, thus restoring the good times.”
