Transmogrificantus Octet is a two movement string octet, written in memory of Austin Peralta, whose ideas and love of music had a profound impact on me. His dynamic, improvisational language and the breathtaking scope of his knowledge were endearing aspects of his character, and they led one to this sense that he possessed a wisdom beyond his years; a limitless propensity for illuminating insights, be they musical, metaphysical, or linguistic. During those challenging, virtuosic moments in which he performed, enraptured in extemporaneous abandon, he reached great heights of musical expression. This octet is less an imitation of his musical direction and more embracing of the classical style which he knew well, and which he always seemed to have a deferential love for.
