Program Notes

In this context, the word "splinter" means to break into small, sharp fragments, and refers to the way in which the piece is structured as a type of mosaic or stylistic patchwork. Many sections of the piece feature instrument sounds breaking or distorting in some way -- whether this be in the extremes of register, wild glissandos, or crunchy chords.

The other meaning of "splinter" is as a foreign object within the body. This acts as a metaphor for my experimentation with some lighter, delicate moments, which are not always part of my musical sound world.
