Earlier this week winter storm Juno rolled through the Northeast, and while New England bore the brunt of the storm, New York City did not receive the “historic” snowfall predicted by some. This short work was inspired by a walk I took in my neighborhood at about 03:45 in the morning—during the height of the storm. As I walked around my little corner of Long Island City the snow quickly covered up any trace of the few people out and about, and I eventually found myself at the Dutch Kills Green, a small park near my home. It was completely blanketed with mounds of snow.
Snow on the Green is a 31-limit work rendered by NotePerformer samples and Sibelius notation software. Like all my works in just intonation, it sets G392Hz as 1/1 (which was the convention of Harry Partch).
