Types of Air (2015)

A cycle of small pieces for harpsichord. Each first weaves a version of reality using both normal notes and the sounds of the mechanism, then proceeds to alter that reality with small variations of individual sounds, portions of rhythm, etc. The titles of the pieces refer to psychoactive plants from South America.
