'mer' explores the wide spectrum of mental states and seeming duality of the mind. Using the sea as its inspiration, the piece is structured with the help of local tide data. Each musician in the ensemble improvises within the framework of the piece to create many layers of ever-changing texture. 'mer' is the second work in a series of three major works for chamber orchestra.
Performed by the Broken Bow Ensemble at the Chapel Performance Space, September 26, 2013.
