‘Concerning stillness’ could have two meanings: a) ‘about stillness’, or b) a stillness that is concerning.

The ticking-over of ruminating thoughts.

The march – or is it a waltz? – of the mind when one attempts to meditate.

Technical note for performer: the dynamics above the stave pertain to the upper line of the music, for example to bring out the left-hand pizzicati above the bowed notes.

Commissioned note

Commissioned by The Committee, for their 2014 project 'New Music For Old Instruments'.

For Polly Sussex.
