The title is from Emily Dickinson's poem There's a Slant of Light: "When it comes, the Landscape listens - Shadows - hold their breath"
In my experiments with the ensemble, fascinating, shadowy sounds frequently emerged. These shadowy sounds, especially in the percussion, define transient qualities in the music that define background textures and circulate, through the ensemble, emerging as foreground features. Another consideration that impacted on the ensemble writing was that a shadow, depending on the slant of light, may magnify or compress the shape of the original object, bringing it into prominence.
