Duration: 8 minutes

Program Notes: in-retro|re-intro:spect describes the experiences of one who constantly and repeatedly contemplates with one’s self, resulting in the frequent misordering of events, false memories, multiple personae and the eventual breaking or coming together of one and one’s self.

These experiences are the result of both introspective and retrospective psychology, that is believed to be unique to the human condition.
