The Liminal State of Rituals – for piano and sinfonietta

Life is filled with rituals. Big and small, personal rituals, rituals in your community, religious rituals, national rituals, and global rituals.A concert is filled with rituals, and in them are coded meanings onto which we project significance. They are somehow necessary to transport us from one place to the next, and to mark the passing of time.

The Liminal State of Rituals was written for Bodø Sinfonietta, and premiered at the Ultima festival with Pierre Andre Valade conducting.
