Performance possibilities

The music is structured as a process and journey, and might be performed in a number of situations

  • as a chamber or concert piece,
  • as a “liturgy” or sacred performance,
  • as a dance score,
  • as a guided meditation in psychological or spiritual work,
  • as simple recorded listening,
  • as a film soundtrack,
  • as re-arranged or “remixed” into new genres beyond classical string quartet.

It might be accompanied by poetry or narration, projected visuals, or ritual taken from any number of spiritual, psychological, or artistic traditions.

Key to the performance is its “liturgical” nature – a drama for the soul presented through multiple art forms, aural and visual, active and reflective. It is hoped that the listeners might be presented the opportunity to identify and contact with their own loss, both individually or collectively.
