Phasing is a compositional technique in which the same repetitive phrase is played on two musical instruments, in steady but not identical tempi. Thus, the two instruments gradually shift out of unison.

A postulation on human-phasing, A Place Just for Us is the story of two young Jewish women - one white and one of color - who meet in the storage closet of their summer camp. Year after year they take refuge from the storm of life; bringing in the weight of the world outside and helping each other take a little of that weight off. Come hell or high water, they continue to meet even as they navigate growing up and growing apart. As time goes by, as all songs in phase do, they fall in and out of sync with each other. Over the years their ideals shift and adjust and seemingly irreconcilable chasms appear. Can young love last? Can love exist just inside one room? Is the world outside simply too much to bear?
