In this work I was drawn to the not-quite-unison melody – the slightly unraveled line – and to quietly rocking chords. The title loosely refers to its slight undulation or floating qualities – a subtle motion or disturbance of the surface, like trailing the hand in water. This piece was commissioned by the Del Sol String Quartet, through the Canada Council for the Arts, and is recorded on Another Timbre by the Bozzini Quartet.
