The title of this piece is from Nabokov and that "through which the past shines" are Transparent Things, the title of his penultimate novel, which I had already used for a piece in 1984. In three movements, this piece does not so much cycle themes but rather intervals in certain registers which become the transparent things through which the past shines. In the second movement a low faint drone is sounded electronically.
"...through which the past shines..."
