SIRKŪLAROM

for orchestra

Sirkūlarom is an Euroźi word with a rather particular meaning: the process by which the familiar world around you (physical or emotional) becomes strange through a progression of abrupt changes. Through the use of the orchestra, I aim to paint this process through multiple different perspectives of timbre within the orchestra.

Formulaically, I put the direct translation of “unending circle worlds” to use through a calculated chaos of small forms imbedded within large forms. This sentiment is additionally echoed within the fragmented echoes of initial theme groups which unfold throughout the work. It is only after leaning into this directional diversity that the piece may take its shape.
