Figures in Time was written as a part of the Wrench project conceived by the ensemble Hexnut. The project is based on the merging of new musical ideas with the photography of Edward Burtynsky. The pieces composed for the project discuss the theme transformation of nature by industry in accordance with Burtynsky’s photographs. Figures in Time will be performed on November 4, 2012 in Rotterdam, NL. This is the last opportunity to see the piece in the Netherlands before its North American premiere next year.
