The miniatures represent six scenes in tableau - a day in a life - sitting and watching the sea.

This work was commissioned by Duo Soundways (Chris Bilobram, guitar; Reinhard Wolschina, piano), Weimar, Germany. For both the composer and the performers, this instrumental partnership presents inherent issues of balance; therefore, depending upon the concert space and the specific instruments involved, the guitar is often amplified. The timbral connection between the guitar and piano is a unique one, as each is, simultaneously, a string and percussion instrument, producing together a sonorous effect that currently enjoys growing popularity in modern chamber repertoire.
