Aposiopesis refers to the use of silence or a pause, leaving something left unsaid. This work is littered with short statements broken by silences of varying lengths, each phrase is left to be completed and uncompleted alike by the listener. Aposiopesis occupies a harmonic world that meanders, searches, and at times even wanders off; the pitches themselves are often lost within the sound of air.
