If you look at just about any period in my work, you'll find pieces that are totally focused on piano, or that are all about piano-type thinking, and then you'll find pieces right next to them that have nothing to do with piano at all, that are all about escape from the piano, escaping from that mode of thought, into a world of insects, or particles, or strange forces or other planets. This is one of those long-term themes that runs through my work, this constant push and pull, back and forth, to and from the piano. And it's certainly true of my recent work as well. So while I wouldn't say that I'm moving away from using piano as a source, I would certainly agree that this tension is one of those key dynamics that animates what I'm doing.
