“Juta’s piece [F, 2018], where it takes quite some time for a continuous tone of reinforced harmonics to emerge amidst the myriad tiny unpredictable rhythmic and timbral effects of the piano’s escapement mechanism and marginal sounds, it feels like concentrating hard enough, or having enough faith, to witness the miraculous; as though a veil is gradually removed and something bright and truthful becomes unconcealed” (RCS New Music Collective concert review by Gregor Forbes).
