Program Note

“At last we freed from the body…
vision exhausted, hallucination arises…
those might be created not yet begun to crystallize… time suspended, a gap that fertile with possibilities”

The culminating piece I wrote for this residency was inspired by the near-death experiences. I attempted to create an intermediate state, a zone between living and dead, a dream-like hallucination, through the combination of instrumental sound and recordings from the scene of car accidents.
