Divination by Mirrors

Program notes:

Divination by Mirrors is a roughly ten-minute work featuring the bowed saw, accompanied by a string orchestra that is divided into two groups of players tuned 1/4 step apart and occupying opposite sides of the stage. The piece has eight Sections, each named for a different kind of divination – foretelling the future by means of the occult.
