The Shape of Time is a large ensemble work that is part of my on-going Smithson Project, a set of works for different sonic media inspired by the work, writings, and inspirations of visual artist Robert Smithson. The title is taken from Kubler's book of the same name, a work which heavily influenced Smithson. The Shape of TIme is in 3 continuous sections.
