Arising from the eventful scenery of Coconino (1985, revised 1993) and the mysterious Visions for string quartet (1992), Kokoro for solo violin (1993) presents a labyrinth of expanding strings, without any immediate markers. Ariadne's Thread (1994), with its entanglement of uninterrupted sounds for string quartet and electronics, is the final secret passage leading to the bright regions of Focus a beam, emptied of thinking, outward... for solo cello (1989), a vast space for meditative reflection.
