An object that is translucent will allow light to pass through but not other details beyond basic form and shape. Thus when looking at a translucent object there is something mysterious and elusive because as a viewer we can see some of what is on the other side but very little. This piece explores that elusive quality of translucence through the blurring of ideas, sounds and sections. The blurring of spectral harmony with equally tempered tone clusters, the blurring of clear brass textures with murky string textures and the blurring of traditional methods of playing with extended techniques of many sorts.
