New York City composer Elizabeth Hoffman plunges us into her personal sound universe where matter is decomposed, presented in a unique angle. Hoffman calls an imaginary world where drums are transformed into abstract resonances (Resonants), where water rustling turns into a myriad of textures (Water Spirits), where birdsongs become entangled harmonic frames (Songstressed), where the sound of strings bursts out into euphoric accumulations of micro-elements (d-ness). On this disc, natural sound is reinvented in the pure acousmatic tradition where the coherent compositional discourse will profoundly and actively engage the listener.
