Program Note

Lost in a Surreal Trip is a rather kaleidoscopic, psychedelic 12-minute piece (for violin, cello, percussion and piano) that evolves not unlike the experience of a 'trip': the music constantly shifts shapes, with rapidly changing, highly contrasting moods and emotions, ranging from the quietly ethereal to the rhythmically energetic to the darkly ferocious.
