This Time is a musical response to a desire to control time, slow it down, and live in a captured, prolonged moment. The opening material represents a kind of snap shot of time. The musical relationships contained in that opening are explored in many ways as the piece progresses.
This Time was composd for Sasha Gee Enegren and is dedicated to David Del Tredici.
