+−(polarity) was composed for this forgotten space in which elements or dimensions within it are abundant, yet normalized and near impossible to be given comprehendible descriptions; consciousness, motion, time and electricity. Through the soundscape that this music creates, my intention is to form our awareness and space as one. The essential idea of this piece requires a new way of layering instruments within an ensemble in the hope to heighten our perception of the space.
