Veils gets its title from the overall shape of its sonic progression: from distant, slow moving, and indistinct sounds to discrete, resonant, and distinctly pitched material. I liken this progression to a slow revealing of hidden beauty, much like pulling layered veils from a work of art. Within this overall shape, certain compositional decisions are determined at performance time by logic built into the computer playback system. By using this logic, every performance realizes a variety of unique details within the same overall progression.
