The Burning is a 45 minute piece specifically writen for Ensemble Klang. The piece moves the musicians between the guitars setup and their own instruments, leaving them to explore directly the sound environment created by the preparation and also to interact with it separately as an ensemble. 

Symbolism of the burning is multiple but singular, it is both destructive and transformative, it is both a metaphor for continuation and an ending.

It is the echo of (the burning) past and burning of the past.
