Space Between

Composer Angela Elizabeth Slater, text by Angela Elizabeth Slater

the space between us,
aches as I unfurl,
a hushed unfolding pressure,
the space between our fingers,
veiled, unseen, inside

Space between has been written for the 100 Second Song project. The piece sets a self-authored poem exploring the pain of distance and disconnection with others and oneself. The piano and voice move as one throughout this work, with the exploration of closeness and distance felt through the chordal spacing within the piano and in relation to the voice.
