Part of a collection written between 2007 and 2009 named after computing syntax, delete/control/option is based on the incongruities between voluntary and involuntary actions. Its fragile and meditative surface disguises its quiet virtuosity in which sonic complexity is born not from the written idea but from the physical attempt at recreating it. delete/control/ option was commissioned by Boston's New Gallery Music Series, and it is dedicated to Sarah Brady and Sarah Bob, with admiration and gratitude.
