I'd gone into this performance sleep-deprived and exhausted. I'd thought it was time to return to the Moog Guitar, and while it did seem to be the right time to hear the music that instrument could express, it does in some senses play itself. From the first notes, the music was there, leading us forward. This music is slow even by the standards of this series--several pieces rely on the texture that develops with long, overlapping tones and timbral modulation. There's a generosity to this week's music; it wants to support us.

This week's titles are references to the visual art of Sophie Bueno-Boutellier. Thank you for listening!
