Description:

The title 'Binary Ties' refers to the two melodic strands that weave around each other to form the foundation of this piece, and often develop into a twisted knot of musical lines. Furthermore, the juxtaposition of 'binary' (ie. divided) and 'ties' (ie. connected) alludes to the contrasts explored in this work; although the musical narrative is constantly unfolding, it always derives from unifying elements which are reimagined throughout the journey.
