Butterfly Effects (CD)
Elizabeth Vercoe’s newest album BUTTERFLY EFFECTS AND OTHER WORKS begins with a
quotation. The Chinese philosopher Zhuangzi asked "Am I a human who dreamt of being a butterfly or am I now a butterfly who dreams of being a human?" This sense of oneness and the paradoxical strength of the fragile butterfly permeates through the composer’s album, establishing themes translated through woodwind instruments, vocals, and piano.
