In Chasm the ensemble presents two different types of music simultaneously. The first is beautiful and sensuous; a slowly moving harmonic progression endlessly cycling. The second is percussive and rhythmic, full of contrasts; a dramatic interplay of different sounds. These two different feelings co-exist throughout Chasm, sometimes meeting, but for the most part content to evolve independently.
