"...had a raw power. Its title, meaning to ‘stitch together’ suggests wounds not quite healed and the piece conveyed vividly the disruptive elements of illness and trauma with fractured lines and a fragmented approach far away from a conventional goal-oriented narrative. Time-honoured gestures such as glissandos, trills and harmonics did appear, but in new and unexpected guises. Generating material and then reacting and responding to it, Ivana Peranic was able to explore the instinctive, creative aspect of her musicianship in this thought-provoking piece, which felt like a strong tribute from the composer to an instrumentalist of uncommon versatility."

Paul Conway, January-March 2022 edition of Musical Opinion Magazine 


circle of perpetual choirs

“Mechanical and natural. Soft and precise. Deliberate and incidental.” 

“It seemed rhythmically and qualitatively infectious. It felt so detailed.”
