Into Focus is a work that seeks to aurally explore the three areas of visual perception known as the focus, fringe, and margin. These three regions of a human’s vision, depending on where the viewer’s attention is directed, have widely varying degrees of resolution and detail. Through a continual blending of harmonic blocks that fade in and out, in volume level, tuning, and instrumentation, Into Focus strives to evoke these blurry areas of visual perception through the medium of sound. From one harmony to the next, the listener is taken on a journey of continually unfolding perceptual interplay where tonal regions meld together, making a dense landscape of harmonic ambiguity and constant dynamism.
