Miller Theatre – Composer Portrait: David T. Little

April 18 @ 8:00 pm

David T. Little grapples with essential human issues through powerfully dramatic compositions. This Portrait features two major works—companion pieces presented together for the first time—that explore the tension between the individual, secrecy, and state violence. Haunt of Last Nightfall, a visceral “ghost play in two acts” for percussion quartet and electronics, examines America’s role in the 1981 massacre at El Mozote. AGENCY, for string quartet and electronics, questions individual autonomy, whether we are subject to unknown and powerful social and political forces. Together, they offer a disquieting account of our place in contemporary society.

Third Coast Percussion commissioned Haunt of Last Nightfall in 2013 and looks forward to performing it at the Miller Theater to honor David’s fantastic work.
