Solo mandolin--the original incarnation of the piece "Contemplation," upon which the 2nd & 3rd versions had multi-tracked acoustic & electric violin & mandolin. From my performance piece "Presence" (2000) w/ dancer M. Dunleavy & glass artists M. Mangiafico, J. Levitt & J. Vojta (latter's image, here).


on youtube:


Though not sung, spoken word can be heard within the soundtrack of the Introduction of "Presence" if watched on youtube, for this performance piece was built around this core music and its attachment poem:

"Contemplation" ~ Lisa A. Miles c 1993:

Where emotions wrestle and wreak havoc on calm composure
To surface and recede in a troubling yet contenting tide
We are all fragments
Shades of our soul like shards of glass
That cut, yet reflect best, our Presence


released February 1, 2000
L Miles: Solo mandolin
Engineer/ Producer: Mike Michalski
