Was Then and Ever Shall Be

Was Then and Ever Shall Be
for flute, viola, cello and optional spoken text

Premiered in 2014 by Leia Slosberg (flute), Eric Hollander (viola), Christine Chen (cello), ETP (spoken text). 

This piece is four nearly identical short movements based on a poem by Eric Hollander and 3 variations written by the other musicians who premiered it. It intends to make the "editing" process audible by means of the variations of the text and the music being detectable, but never intrusive.
