about

I found Eurybia. Heart moved like the ocean. Swallowed by the sea. Easy to feel like I'm drowning. It feels like sinking. It feels like I’m floating. I wish not to be lost under the depths of this ocean—lost inside a void. Rays of light dance and pierce sharply beneath the surface. A space unknown, it's easy to be fearful. A space of chaos, things are beyond control. A wave of order, momentary as it is, provides a bounty of lessons. Above all, I found beauty. Beyond all, I am better than I was before. What else can one wish for? A gift to treasure. A thing to express. —Vis

Eurybia was painful to make. This piece is perhaps the clearest and most direct expression I've made. It was profoundly therapeutic. This is piece is in just intonation.
