Program Notes

"Bending, breaking through" explores a continual path from one state into another, focusing up close on what is in-between as these movements unfold. Sounds are stretched, suspended, and pushed into different folding and unfolding. What came before is imprinted into the new; no matter how different, subtle strands extend and emerge throughout these transformations.
