This work is part of an ongoing series dedicated to Pittsburgh and Pittsburgh-Adjacent neighborhoods and townships. Part of the Penn Hills municipality, Shadow Shuttle is a hillside enclave overlooking I-376 between Churchill and Monroeville. I've never been there. The piece was composed daily over a two-week period on 14 lines of Carta landscape score paper. The performer has the option of re-ordering select lines. Some are notated traditionally, while others make use of verbal descriptions in an effort to alter recurring material. A second draft was made in September, also on Carta landscape paper, with a broad-nibbed Kaweco fountain pen.
