traces that time leaves on built form borrows its title from Bernard Tschumi's seminal essay Architecture and Transgression. Tschumi identifies the relationship between a structure and its decay as one that passes through states, which allows the structure to transgress the limits within which it was initially conceived: "The most architectural thing about this building is the state of decay in which it is." The instruments in this piece create identities around the idea of decay: the constant sound of the cymbals lightly brushed and the piano's pedal repeatedly depressed creates a renewal at every moment of a sound that immediately dies after its attack. Obstinate remembering of a perpetual state of forgetting.
