Attractors is a meditative journey through a series of near-unison arpeggiated gestures. Processed and sustained resonances of these gestures in the recording, rendered in slightly different tunings, expand the harmony and timbre of the ensemble. As this central idea spins out (over a quiet pulse), different harmonic regions and moods are discovered, creating intensity curves within the basic framework. Attractors was written for the Iktus Piano and Percussion Duo and premiered in Seattle (WCF Transport Series) in 2013.
