Program Note:

It just moves is a short work for piano and electronics, that uses the story told by violinist Theo Ramsey. The spoken text featured in the composition is below:

"I have a deep and visceral love of linen fabric. I have this linen square. I keep it on a nail by my bedroom door, and when I need a bit of delight, I take it down, and I will just shake it in the air in front of me and look at it. [laughter] I have it with me now, and when I set it down... you know, you put it down... and it like, it just moves! [laughter] I find it so delightful."
