About seventeen minutes after this piece begins it will end. Although these seventeen minutes are essential for the deployment of the piece, more important to this composer is the impression that remains in the mind of the listener after the final sound has died away. I hope that some sense of shape or form is conveyed and that, rather than just a few salient features, the listener will apprehend a complete "object" which can later be reviewed and explored within his or her mind. It is this relationship between the temporal exposition of the piece and the spatial residue that the title, time's distance, refers to.
