Desmodus Rotundus; or, Night of the Full Blue Moon was written during the last few days of July, 2004. The last day of composition, July 31st, coincided with a full moon. The term ‘blue moon’ is used to denote two occurrences of a full moon within a single month. The piece is based on a four-note motive that undergoes various transformations throughout. Lower and mid registers of the instrument often dominate the piece, exploring full and lush tone qualities available.
