Canthus - n. the outer or inner corner of the eye, where the upper and lower lids meet.

This work is an exploration of phasing and stretching of time with no two elements being exactly symmetrical. It draws its basis of form upon both Gothic architecture and Renaissance music theoretical/applied conventions to create a work which is both percussive in nature while using time relations of form to further alter one's perception of temporal interplay. 

The eyes hold the history of our expression - the outer corners offering an interesting grounds for analysis through musical form.
