Little Poppet (2009) mute music for solo trumpet was written for Colby Cooman.

It is a brief piece that inflects a single musical line with the sound of the various trumpet mutes. The musical discourse moves between scherzando gestures and searchingly lyrical ones.

The “physical display” of the mute changes may call to mind a marionette on strings.
