Six Miniatures was completed in 2011.  The work consists of six short vignettes that explore some of the many textures and timbres available to this ensemble.  Each miniature follows a different overall dynamic envelope: loud to soft, soft to loud, all soft, all loud, loud-soft-loud, and soft-loud-soft.
