the world's turning*** for orchestra with scupture

SAMUEL ANDREYEV The Flash of the Instant** (World Premiere)

Aitken's work reflects the balance of Yin and Yang in a commemoration of deceased family, friends and associates "who sleep before us". Cashian explores momentum, stasis, mechanisms and patterns in tandem with Vince's sculptures while Andreyev's transcendent sonic poetry moves in prismatic micro-variations. Bjarnason draws inspiration from and pays tribute to New York School painters Mark Rothko and Jackson Pollock.
