Composer's Notes

A recurring concern in Through Your Fingers is the space between direct and elusive. Solid lines of melody become flickering vapor trails. Robust chords become distant wind chimes. Transformation, illusion and reimagining interact with straightforward notions of harmony and melody to create a dialogue between music that is readily grasped and that which seems to slip through one’s fingers

Through Your Fingers is a little over 17 minutes long and is played without pause although there are 3 almost pauses – nodes – that join 4 discrete musical threads that arc, one by one, through the piece.

-Steven Mackey
