First performance of Mangle for solo bass and electronics. The piece draws inspiration from disfigurement, both literal and conceptual, as reflected through scientific factors such as physiological impacts of abiotic and repetitive stresses, anthropological considerations of historical forms of manual labor, the history of disability rights activism, and meditation on the fluidity of identity and the spiritual transformations that accompany the human experience of senescence.
