Work Overview

This piece is an idiosyncratic sextet which develops a series of interlocking rhythmic gestures. The inspiration for this work is the modular origami process which involves folding many identical units of paper which are then put together to form a variety of three dimensional geometric shapes including stars and cubes. The sections of the work follow a similar process of development, building to a final section which depicts the finished product as a single harmonious object.
