Traced Forms is a piece for solo classical guitar that was composed in close collaboration with guitarist Thomas Goddard Aquino. I intended Traced Forms to be a showcase of Thomas’ superb technique and virtuosic ability and composed each line with this in mind. Simultaneously, the materials and techniques found in Traced Forms come directly from my own childhood experiences playing the electric bass and electric guitar. In this sense, Traced Forms is a reflection on those memories and musical moments. It is a tracing of my own embodied experience that is then reflected into a new form, the classical guitar.
