Catherine Lamb: “I began to work on Dilations early in the Summer of 2007. Its form (feeling like a sculpture), being a series of openings, drifted in and out of my awareness until about a year later when I wrote the text. I decided that the text (entitled: cloud on cloud) and (ever subtly changing) form were congruent because both had come from similar spaces. The text, in a sense, informed its structure, its “cloud-like” presence throughout the unfolding, existing sound world. I continued to approach the piece like a sculpture, forming its shape from all sides, the text floating within.”
