Artist's Statement
My name is Jack W Stamps. I am a composer and San Antonio native. I am honored that the San Antonio organization, Musical Bridges Around the World, has asked me to write a new work for an upcoming Middle Eastern-themed concert. This new work is to be scored for piano quartet and one percussionist playing Middle Eastern instruments. With the generous support of a grant from the Artist Foundation of San Antonio, I propose a follow up to my most recent piece, THE SENSUOUS TERRAIN, which will continue to explore the confluence of Western, jazz-inspired impulses and Middle Eastern modalities, patterns and juxtapositions. Also, I am eager to continue to research new ways I can further apply advanced graphic design to the construction of the musical score. I enthusiastically point out that the performing ensemble will contain the celebrated New York ensemble, DuoJalal; a violist and Middle Eastern percussion specialist as well as the cello-piano duo, Warner Nuzova, also from the New York area.
