The textures of her most recent compositional inventions and musical settings are startling, and create the impression of shimmering, drifting and floating, of glittering and sliding. But it also knows the other zones, the ones that are dark and deep, as well as the insistent probing and poking into areas of discomfort. Behind a brilliant, often entrancingly beautiful façade, the abyss always shows through.
