Program Notes

"Capsule" explores the intimacy and closeness to sounds within a small space and how it begins to define and confine us. What’s just out of reach begins to seem distant, opening up a new field of perspective that can be hard to grasp but conjure up distinct rememberings and longings of place.    While writing the piece, I became more sensitive to the small place where I live and work. I started to feel considerable contrasts in how sounds from outside my window or sounds from the “outside” would become such large other worlds that distance in a space was refreshing to experience.
