Programme Note

 

Following months of constant stimulation in New York City, the time I spent at Waikanae Beach during a brief visit back to New Zealand felt completely surreal. Coastlines reflects on this dreamlike reacquaintance with the expansive Kāpiti Coast, particularly its shifting light and hypnotic tides.

Coastlines was commissioned by Waikanae Music Society in celebration of their 40th Anniversary, for performance by the Amici Ensemble.
