    Witness Pixel, The

    21st Century. The unusual term, Witness Pixel, comes from a process used in a field of cosmology that is actually beyond the understanding of the composer but was explained by her son who works at Berkeley on telescopes that detect the origins of the universe.

    Witness pixels look at the coordination of all the layers of metal and ceramics working in concert to form the finished telescope detector.

    Elizabeth Raum was taken with the imagery this term conjured up and thought it fit the whimsical nature of the piece in addition to the comparison to a group of musicians, each with his own individual part, striving to work together with the other layers. - the publisher
