1. (16:19)—Originally released with the 2007 album From Stills to Motion. A soft swirl of suspended, simultaneous tones that converge but never quite resolve. Picks up in intensity slowly—becomes slightly aggressive in the manner of an increasingly scorching heat.
2. (22:17)—Recorded 2001. First half is very calm, like the glow of a soft, outdoor light. Unlike “A Still Life,” the music grows increasingly dissonant and ghostly (though never unpleasantly so). Second half is a bit rougher and darker, but not aggressive.
3. *(18:36)—Recorded summer 1999. Lighter and purer, like being at a park in the late afternoon or watching the sun from the bottom of a swimming pool. A silky flow of brilliant tonal colors.
4. *(21:42)—Recorded 2006-2007. Begins in dramatic fashion, as though someone has just switched on a bright flashlight in a dark forest. The piece quickly settles into a pattern that carries through to the end, but over time the music also grows calmer and the brightness dissipates. My favorite.
