2017: a NOTEworthy year!
Wayfaring Stranger, a new work for solo multiphonic flute, released on video. July, 2017
Sandstone Peak, a new work commissioned and premiered by Mélomanie, April, 2017
"McAlvin is a clever composer who skillfully adapts the serial technique to tell a story of illusion, erosion and feeling exposed. Throughout the composition, the row becomes dismantled and recombined reappearing in each movement in various guises and instrumental textures. The effect is one of fantasy and vulnerability."
JUST FOR FUN!
