The Universe is Vibrating (2016)

9’; fl, vla, harp

The Universe is Vibrating is an introspective contemplation on the idea that everything in the universe has a measurable frequency and is therefore vibrating. Even further, should string theory hold true, the most fundamental particles of life are just vibrating strings. By channeling energy through vibrational timbres specific to the instruments in the trio, I reflect on the idea that the universe has an innate symphony of sounds unheard by human ears.
