Aside from being the genus name for a modern segmented worm and the nickname of a Roman consul associated with both Cicero whom he helped to defeat the Catiline Conspiracy" and Julius Caesar, spinther refers, in the Gnostic tradition, to a spark !or 'splinter' of transcendental light, awakened with the coming of knowledge. It may be considered, in some situations, an example of the immanent presence in a living being of pneuma, the spirit. In this sense, spinther stands at the intersection between the physical, phenomenal world and the transcendental, noumenal world.

As has been the case in a number of my recent pieces, spinther is also the title of a light installation by the artist James Turrell.

spinther was written for Ensemble Modelo62.
