Imbalance was originally written for the Tel Aviv-based Meitar Ensemble and premiered at the CEME Festival in Israel, in August of 2015. The title of the piece was initially motivated by the ever-going political and religious tensions involving Israel and the Middle East in general. In an abstract representation of that situation, the work presents points of stability (or balance) –in regards to rhythm, tone quality, pitch range, and dynamics– and unfolds amid the tensions created by the alternation of contrasting elements (regular against irregular pulse, focused against broad pitch range, clear against distorted tone, stable dynamics levels against sudden changes, etc.). In the end, Imbalance attempts to suggest a difficulty in maintaining stability throughout the piece.
