Programme Note

This piece is concerned with possibilities. Musical possibilities that are conceivable but remain out of reach or they consistently present themselves as a struggle to attain. Herein lies the tension of the piece. There is a fight to reach that which is perhaps not possible. How do we try and reach that which is beyond us? The music evolves, it tries to change, becomes something new so as to access new possibilities for itself. This attempt to change is in vain, it cannot, it is another struggle that provides tension and an evasive resolution.
