Abstract

Inspired by cosmic forces, this piece is concerned with disruptive gestures and the resonance and repercussions that arise in their aftermath. In the first half of this single movement work, a simple theme spins out from an initial, fortissimo "white key" cluster on the piano, surrounded by subtly shifting harmonies and timbres. The theme is then fragmented within a "black key" pentatonic harmonic world, culminating in a new set of piano clusters, from which emerge a final series of harmonic and timbral expanses.
