Program Notes

"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.
