These are the links to videos from my Master's Recital in March of 2012.
To Sleep No More was written while Kevin himself was experiencing a bout of insomnia. He wanted to piece together the lullaby quality of sleep and some of the more unsettling qualities of sleep deprivation.
He wrote this piece for a friend's wedding. He wanted to capture the wonder and organic nature of young romance as well as the feel and color of fall.
Kevin wrote this as a technical exercise to continue developing his contrapuntal understanding. Fugues, when well written, come across as fluid and fairly straightforward pieces, but are actually quite involved and use an array of thematic devices to derive their material, making them pretty complex structurally. He was interested in this idea of a simple facade with complex underpinnings.
