Work Overview

Looking back on this work some 25 years later I remember being excited by Elision's performers Daryl Buckley and Stephen Morey, and my own background as a guitarist encouraging me to write for this duo. Daryl's initial promotion of the ensemble - something like "the performers who wear red shoes', might have also had something to do with it. The style of the work is somehwat in a post minimalist vein but it is probably more like it's sister piece of the time, my Venus Asleep, also written for Elision.
