Khôra-khôraFlute, piano.

Commissioned by Duo Axis. 

Khôra-khôra was commissioned by Zach Sheets and Wei-Han Wu in 2016. While writing this piece, I became interested in Plato’s concept of the khôra: an immense, shapeless space that lies between the intelligible and sensible worlds. I began to think of time as khôra – an enigmatic abyss, an eternal receptacle, that is empty while also containing paradigms of all things. These thoughts helped re-shape and inform my creative process in various abstract ways while composing this piece. This piece is warmly dedicated to Zach and Wei-Han.
