Written for guitarist Nemanja Ostojic, ‘Especes Perdues’ (Lost Species) is a small statement about the perils of human-induced climate change. The first movement, ‘Lament for the Seas,’ is an adagio that ebbs, flows, undulates, a chorale with melodic fragments weeping for what the oceans have lost. The second movement, ‘Against the Earth,’ rages and froths. It is a kind of stuttering toccata using a combination of abrasive chords and repeated note motives. On occasion, it refers back to the first movement, but only briefly before launching itself into another fit.
