Work Overview

'/iu/', is made up of the two prominent vowels between the words 'me', and 'you', upon which the work is primarily conceptualised in both 'intra-' and 'extra-' musical aspects. In emphasising the gradual 'morphing'of the sonic material, the fundamental idea of transformation from a particular 'me', to 'you' is thus reiterated, if not rather inevitably enforced and structured.

The attempts to resist, to rebel against this 'blend' is subdued by the depth in which the similarities are embedded within. It is only through self-discovery and acceptance would such metamorphosis be embraced, allowing it to progress towards forming a new understanding and, identity.
