UNMASKING PRESENCE (2015)
for Piano Trio (vln, vlc, pn)
Dedicated to the Iris Trio; Miranda Hollingsworth, Mitchell Wright, and David Pham
"Silence without, stillness within. You have entered the Unmanifested."
I. Forfeit of Being
An ungrounded soul searches for meaning, identity, and understanding.
II. Through the Illusion
The soul is led down a path of somber idealism and false stability.
III. The Present
Freedom comes through separation from the egoic mind; the soul can see itself for what it truly is.
