Work Overview

Culturally, we have lost the art of trusting our intuition as individuals or a group. This piece requires the musicians to trust their own instincts as well as each other's sense of musicality. It requires trust ideally with one instrument not being more 'present' than another.

The musical and human elements must interlock in order to function fully.

Our environment - the Earth, is a most wonderful role model.
