Moi Qui Tremblais


This work was created initially as part of a dance collaboration between Dancemakers and Arraymusic in Toronto.  There is a subtle inner melody undulating its way through the repeated piano chords, themselves not entirely regular but also slightly changing.  I hear this work as melodic – almost a song;  a boat makes its way through a rocking sea, the words of a poem along the white page.
