SATBB (2017) 6'40"

Ma or 間 is described by the legendary Japanese film-maker Hayao Miyazaki in an interview with Roger Ebert as "emptiness." To demonstrate, he claps his hands together. "The time in between my clapping is ma. If you just have non-stop action with no breathing space at all, it's just busyness, but if you take a moment, then the tension building in the film can grow into a wider dimension."

Premiered on June 8th, 2018 by The Choral Projects as part of their EARTHSONGS concert series.
