The Time Before We Became Strangers was written in 2015 for Ensemble Mise-En. At the time I wrote the piece, I was also working on a large dance project, and both the rhythmic and theatrical aspects of ballet have influenced this smaller composition. To me, the music depicts a vignette: two strangers meet, have an intense relationship, and part ways almost as if their whole involvement was imagined during a brief moment where they pass by one another on the street.
