TIBET: Time Is Bringing Everyone Together   (5:16)     Trio for flute, harp, and vibraphone

Inspired by the Tibetan folk song "trang son la," this orchestration/composition features Seibi (Agnes) Lee (harp), Gillian Johnson (flute) and Jackie McCaig (marimba). The acronym-inspired title has a deliberate "double entendre." To approach the numerous challenges on the Tibetan Plateau, people from all sides have come together, which could become a new model for intercultural engagement and cross-cultural understanding.

Symbolically, interlocking musical parts offer another interpretation of how musical time brings people together…in a way that may be experienced as more sonorous rather than cacophonous.
