On the morning of September 11,2001 when the planes hit the towers, I was teaching in New York City. In the school, all were soon aware of the chaos only eight miles south, but outside at the corner of 122nd and Broadway one saw only the seemingly normal happenings of an unusually beautiful day. Not until the crowds started surging north in search of escape from the island some hours later was there any indication in that landscape of the enormity of what had occurred. For the rest of the day and the day that followed I found myself accepting music, playing and writing, as though sound could offer a counterforce to the incomprehensible. These twenty minutes of music were written in those two days.
