for sextet (fl, cl, vn, vc, mar, pf)
"My form is created entirely out of straight lines and flat surfaces ordered at symmetrical right-angles. Every side, every line is the same as every other. Intersection facing intersection. This is me at peace with myself. I can begin rotating at the slightest movement, yet it is not always possible to forsee my path of motion, for the possibility of changing direction at any moment I leave open. My way is found along my edges or my corners. If I am not resting on a surface then I am moving in this linear fashion."
A square's eye view - its inherent form is the lead for musical transformation.
The ensemble follows characteristic figurations as a compact motional unit. The way leads from a description of the object through to the mechanisms of its motion and on to playfully gestural formulations.
Circular motions, rotation around a fixed axis, gradual advancement over sound layers, using pulses to create structure, fragmentary phases and moments of dancy movement are but a few aspects which infuse throughout this piece.
