EEEETTTT: Apperceptions is an introspective, fluid journey through the aural mind. The word "apperception" has to do with the thought-processes of assimilating a new idea into an existing body of ideas—something I'm very interested in in my own life, but also fitting with my concept of the piece. So in working with that definition, the new idea is introduced as the opening statement. Other ideas are brought in as short, often contrasting sections, while the original idea keeps returning—similar to the iconic Unanswered Question by Ives. As with the Ives, end is left somewhat unresolved, an uncertainty whether the idea has been truly integrated into the whole, or still remains unperceived.
