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.
