by Ellen Lindquist (b. 1970)- American composer
Groundings reflects the ongoing cycles on "groundedness" and "ungroundedness" that we as human beings all face throughout our loves: cycles in which grounded, balanced states evolve mysteriously into- and emerge out of-ungrounded, chaotic ones. The title also pays homage to the "ground basses" common in music of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.
This piece is scored for alto flute, bassoon, and piano.
