Work Introduction

Perpetual alternation:

Litany for an
imaginary ceremonial.

Ceremonial of remembrance – whence these
recurrent patterns, changing in profile
and perspective.

Ceremonial of death, ritual
of the ephemeral and the eternal:
thus the images engraved
on the musical memory –
present / absent, in uncertainty.
