back and forth, a trail of time (2023)

flute, clarinet, violin, cello,  double bass, prepared piano, percussion, field recording

note to listeners & players:


restoring force of time.
a squeaky swing set wrinkles the air,
back and forth,
kneading the clay of time.
pendulous branches sway in a field of avian calls, back and forth,
tailing after a trail of time, back and forth.
