Trompe l'oreille. The aural equivalent to an optical illusion. Such images are often a blur, gradually coming into focus as the eye adjusts and changing form as one's perspective changes. This piece begins on the edge of aural perception, slowly unfolding and evolving.

Delicate Fragility was read by the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra with conductor Marc Taddei in their Graduate Composers' Workshop, 3 October 2005.
