Armed Only With Nuts (2012) by Karen Power

ARRAYMUSIC YOUNG COMPOSERS’ WORKSHOP CONCERT
Presenting four new works written in a month long mentorship with Composer
Christopher Butterfield, Array’s Artistic Director Rick Sacks and The Array Ensemble.

“This work utilizes the wonderful facilities that have been provided to us throughout this
workshop: Continual access to musicians during the creative process. Therefore, much of the piece was derived in real-time with the musicians and away from paper. The end
score serves more as a means to repeat the work and remains as minimal as possible.
The work is structured so that the exact durations of passages are open, but the shape,
contour and textures are relatively predetermined.” KP
