Shift

For string orchestra; 7′, 2016.

Composed for and premiered by Ensemble Arkea, conducted by Dina Gilbert on January 28 at Chapelle historique du Bon-Pasteur, Montréal. Presented at Finale du concours Accès Arkea, one of five finalists chosen. Live recording.

Shift explores moments of transparency through the awareness of space and movement. Through the perception of time being lengthened or shortened, one’s awareness of the space between movements is accentuated. In that way, the continuity of space through movement becomes more obvious.
