For string sextet. The scordatura tunings help to lend an otherworldly sound, and the quasi-through-composed short-lived sections are in the spirit of hypnagogic reverie. The music loosely draws on fragments from Peruvian folkloric music I heard as a child. And throughout, the soloistic role of the first viola player reveals an observer who is neither here nor there and everywhere in between. — Gabriela Lena Frank
