Programme note:

Graphene is a form of carbon consisting of sheets just one atom thick, with the atoms arranged in a honeycomb-shaped lattice. In relation to its thickness, it is about 100 times stronger than steel. Graphene conducts heat and electricity very efficiently and is nearly transparent.

'Graphene Machine' reflects Graphene's characteristic of extreme thinness and relative strength through the contrast of quiet delicate sounds with forceful dynamic playing. The piece also features interlocking six-note patterns that were inspired by Graphene's hexagonal atomic structure.
