About

Just in the way music boxes are used to store keepsakes and ignite faded memories, the instrumentalists in this piece are called on to respond to the primary instrumentalist by playing a transformed and faded version of the initial musical occurrence. Much in the same way memories are often comprised of reality and ongoing transfiguration's; the instrumentalists material becomes more disparate and takes on more of a life of its own.
