Taking its cues from the visual patterns in nature, Labyrinths contains five movements, each of which is a musical illumination of a moment in time. Repetition and slow evolution of the simple musical materials create a subtly rich world of activity within an environment of seeming stasis. From the composer: "The visual patterns of nature are a mesmerizing, infinite source of inspiration. Waves of wind and water, the shifting play of light and shadow, the maze of lines and shapes on rocks and trees, colors that subtly evolve over time.... In recent compositions, I have attempted to translate some of this into music." For advanced players. Dur.: 15'.
