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.

Commissioned, recorded and digitally premiered by Ensemble Apex for their 2020 digital season.
