“… [A Certain Sense of Order] uses multiple layers of duality with the two singers Rosie Middleton and Rebecca Cuddy sometimes acting as patient and therapist, and sometimes as aspects of the same person. At a certain point, a recording of Anne Sexton herself reading the poem was added. The musical element included the two singers (sometimes performing the same thing, sometimes slight variations), two keyboards, two typewriters and at one-point the pianist Naomi Woo playing a duet with a recording of herself… The result was striking and intriguing, and it will be interesting to see how it develops.”
