Likely Pictures in Haphazard Sky (2016) contrasts moments of delicate sparseness with passages of rich textures and emphatic lyricism. Throughout the work, the fragments introduced in the sparse, faltering opening gradually coalesce into distinct melodic ideas. The title comes from a poem called “Starlight” by William Meredith. Meredith uses constellations to explore, among other things, our natural fear of randomness and our instinctive desire to find or create meaningful patterns.
