    According to the composer, 'Spiral is a short piece that traces the transformations of a small number of instrumental gestures as they orbit each other in ever-contracting circles...the idea of a "spiral-shaped" orchestra piece is something I've been thinking about for a while. Some of the musical ideas and gestures in this piece were definitely inspired by my experiences of and with Simon and the Berlin Philharmonic (namely their unique physical energy and precision), but the idea of a spiral is not directly connected to them.'
