Composer's Notes  
Hout (Wood) was written for Loos at the request of Dirk Simons. Although the whole work is in principle a strict canon, the successive voices are so close together that it is more like a unison melody with ramifications.

Ramifications and branches are the same word in Dutch. This especially refers to the branches of a tree, so the use of wooden instruments - marimba and woodblocks - help explain the title of the work.
