Imitations explores how we constantly reflect those with whom we surround ourselves; we are naturally influenced by each other's body language, vocabulary and intonation, personality and values, etc. Hence, the musical lines in this piece often work in close canon between instruments, imitating each other to create dense and exciting textures. Furthermore, subtle stylistic references are introduced and combined to create a unique musical style, thus reflecting the process of finding one’s own voice as an emerging artist, and the importance of imitation to that process.
