Sonic resonances are the backbone for many musical textures in this work. Interwoven lines between the four instruments find their prolongations in the electronic sounds and vice versa. The idea of resonance also plays out in the relationship between strictly notated passages and moments of guided creative freedom. In many instances only a few musical parameters are given to inspire the instrumentalists improvisations. Contrasting energies and densities are used to shape an overall musical flow between solo and tutti passages, similar to an animated conversation among passionate individuals.
