Woven, Still

For multi-percussion and electronics; 2017

Commissioned by Caution Tape Sound Collective and premiered by Evan Bowen at Singles Vol.3 on October 21, 2017, at Arrayspace in Toronto. Supported by Ontario Arts Council through commissioning grant.

Woven, Still explores elements of ritualistic and habitual tendencies through two contrasting sound spaces that gradually influence the other. Some habits can be tightly wound and so ingrained in our bodies, almost as if one snaps or is pulled back into place when trying to let go. The dynamic of this tension slowly dissolves throughout the piece through an opening of space, allowing room to breathe and reflect.
