From its first notes, it invests the dance with a fable-like quality, a sense that something momentous – maybe even magical – is about to unfold.
- David Lyman, Cincinnati Enquirer

This is a collection of two standalone pieces that I composed for the Cincinnati Ballet in 2009 and 2010. Both times, I worked with the choreographer Heather Britt, who took the music and created beautiful, large-scale dance performances.

The first set of three songs comprise All too Wonderful, the piece from 2009, and the second three comprise Strange Loop from 2010.
