Written for the 2021-22 CeReNeM ‘Virtual’ Ensemble in Residence programme with ELISION Ensemble. Dedicated to the members of ELISION and to Ryan Williams.
Rising abruptly from the landscape, sheer, imposing, and breathtaking, these exposures of bedrock, weathered, crowning mountain tops, reveal a primordial earth. Cultures, societies, and civilizations that revel in the tor’s shadow are but a moment in their ever-watching eyes.
The ensemble enacts a ceremony.
