Work Overview

Mirroring can describe the reflection of an image, the creation of symmetry, and the act of imitation between people. Written amidst various lockdowns, the piece reflects on the warmth created between people when they mirror each other, whether in speech or body language, and the saddening refractions and distortions which can take place when this communication is moved online. Moving between cold and warm timbres on the Vibraphone, cycling arpeggiations undergo small changes as if unreliably mirrored in a digital world. Dissonant mid and high-register notes emerge and linger towards the end of the piece, settling into lostness rather than a sense of finality.
