Program Note

The inexorable march of time is a constant in our lives; it continues to flow, never pausing or slowing down but only accelerating. At times, it can feel as though the future is hurtling toward us with such speed that it threatens to overwhelm us. This sensation of being caught in the relentless advance of time can be both exhilarating and daunting.

On Composition

Othello layers and integrates the tranquility of the shō on noise music with beats. The music is available for download on iTunes, Amazon Music, and other distributers.
