    Penumbra explores unorthodox harmonies and textures in the context of a piano trio.

    During an eclipse, the penumbra is the region of a shadow in which an observer will see a partially illuminated space in the darkness produced by the occluding body. The form of Penumbra reflects this, enveloping breathtaking, brooding episodes inspired by the vastness of space with shimmerings of light and hope.
