Transparence is the concluding piece of the Trans cycle written for the Modern Art Ensemble of Berlin to whom it is dedicated. The search for transitional forms of evolution in the previous Trans pieces is now reassessed in a context defined by the viola where the previous dialectics may now be dissolved into a more translucent sonic imagery.

The world premiere of transparence took place at the Konzerthaus in Berlin on 29th November 2014 and was performed by the Modern Art Ensemble with John Palmer and Heloise Ph. Palmer (electronics).
