Director: Carolyn Downie 
Run Time: 5:20

Synopsis: 'To Light' is a piece made for the opening of the new 9/11 Memorial in NYC. It's about bringing things 'to light' and bringing 'light' to things. It's a piece to match the 9/11 WTC 'Tribute in Light'. 

Synopsis (full): 'To Light' is a piece made for the opening of the new 9/11 Memorial in NYC marking the 10th anniversary of 9/11/01. The music is conceptual and mirrors the architectural concept by Michael Arad* with its angular, symmetrical and spacious design. A new perspective is also represented with Jungian psychology and philosophical themes expressed in the text. It’s a piece about learning, remembering and holding a space to connect with the architecture and the meaning of 9/11 moving forward. It's a piece about bringing things 'to light' and bringing 'light' to things. It's a piece to match the 9/11 WTC 'Tribute in Light'. It intends to help bring understanding and appreciation to everyone, especially those who are unable to visit. 
*'If this was a scar, and the fabric of the city was scarred, I felt it should be mended back to the life of the city, not erased; not celebrated as a scar but allowed to heal back. The waterfalls themselves mark the passage of time, endlessly flowing into the earth. The moving water is meant to be cleansing and its sound soothing. The recessed pools are designed to allow the sky and sun to shine about. You walk up to the edge of these voids, you see these voids that are tangible emptiness. It's not an emptiness that's devoid of meaning. It's an emptiness that's full of meaning. It's about the persistence of this absence in so many ways, absence of these people, absence of the towers that stood here.'  - Michael Arad, architect
