Work Overview

This Confession is a portrait depicting the emotion of a character in confession. We know little about this character. We can only guess from the musical lines and the emotion therein what has transpired in the past.
There are two levels of consciousness here: superficial sentiments of the character are expressed by the live instrument - we hear surface emotions of regret, guilt, contrition etc. These emotions are betrayed in the electronics however by darker, contradictory instincts.
