NOTES

This mesmerizing dip into the world of synchronized swimming tests musical boundaries of rhythm and breath, and subtly explores questions of captivity, freedom, and identity.  

 

The text is taken from a short story by Maria Reva, whose fiction has appeared in the Atlantic, The New Quarterly, and other publications.  Among her many accomplishments, Maria also served as musica intima’s marketing manager and we are thrilled to welcome her back as a lyricist and poet.
