Work Overview

Being and Time II: Tabula Rasa for solo piano and dice

A philosophical existential in three frames, inspired by Imants Tillers' Tabula Rasa (2012), dedicated to the artist's father.

remember me

From the vestiges of determinism, who is remembering whom?
And when memories are erased, with what do we replenish our being?

late horizons

Beyond the sinuous line tracing family trees, how do we navigate the abyss? When language is lost, what can be sung?


In the diaspora of constellations, what can we hold onto? In the future that is becoming

~ only movement or stillness or an idea of being

Rosalind Page, 2012
