Time(e)scap(ad)es (2016) for marimba solo and chamber ensemble is a work that explores the interweaving of musical textures as determined by predetermined musical time. This is achieved with rhythmic patterns, as well as metric/hypermetric patterns. The traditional sense of orchestration, of material development, and of form, is challenged amicably by this focused perspective. The inclusive pun expresses the feeling of time as fleeting moments, as (in)measurable spaces, and the experience of it as the adventurous play that is abound in this work.
