Fixtures in the Fold was composed in spring of 2017. Prior to composing the work, a memoir I had been reading by musician/artist/poet Patti Smith had me thinking a great deal about the relationship between objects and memory. In her memoir, Smith looks to objects she has collected throughout her life to lend meaning to the present moment.

"An Absolute Insufficiency of Electricity" takes its name from a particularly evocative chapter title in Haruki Murakami's novel "The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle." In this chapter (no spoilers, I promise), the reader observes a married man an engaged woman share a single night together in a hotel room, never more than embracing, but forced in their embrace to confront the "absolute insufficiency of electricity" they both so distinctly feel in their lives.
