Entanglement was written for and is dedicated to Nora Lewis. The work abstractly reflects on quantum entanglement, a phenomenon whereby the state of individual particles, even when separated by large amounts of space, can not be described independently from the other particles. The work presents various musical and visual material at the beginning, each of which then has a section that focuses on presenting that material.  

The vast majority of the audio and visual events are dependent on the instrumental performance. The work presents a web of connections across time, within each audio and visual layer, and between media. This work would not have been possible without the generous support of a Technology Grant from the College of Fine Arts at Western Michigan University.
