From the composer:
Obsessive circularity of thought explores our tendency to replay real and imagined conversations, analyzing each phrase from a million different angles and wishing that we said something different. We are tormented by what was and could have been until we find a way to break the cycle and release ourselves. Musically, the piece explores the slight differences in colour and tuning between the strings of the two manuals, obsessively recycling the same notes and patterns with gradual changes.
