Dot Matrix Dialect

for cello, percussion, piano and electronics, 2016

Dot Matrix Dialect is music composed of points. These points populate the gestural language of the instruments and the electronics. On the one hand these points are content being transitory, being indivisible, adding emphatic punctuation without having any clear ideas to punctuate. On the other hand these points are desperate to be building blocks, to form the seductive curvature of glyphs and characters, to spell out words and assemble thoughts, to migrate into the sky and form the shapes that tell stories. But, alas, they are only points.
