Piling Sand—Piling Stone 2 is a ninety-minute work for viola and cello, with a cumulative delay loop that layers fifteen six-minute segments of sound, increasing in density as the piece progresses. These layers of recorded sound intermix with the live viola and cello leaving at the end a reverberating sonic installation. It is the second piece in a series of works, the first piece in this series, a piece for solo harp, was premiered in 2003 in Los Angeles, California, by American harpist Susan Allen, and a third piece, which is nearing completion, will be performed by violist Meika Kohut and painter Donna Kelly. Premiered by Suna no onna in November 2007 at Blim in Vancouver, BC. Suna no onna also gave its US premiere at Listen/Space in Brooklyn, NY on April 4, 2008.
