When I Dream, I Dream of You
When I Dream, Dream of You is from the larger, chamber ensemble set titled Solitude & Secrecy, which was written between 2020-2021. Composed during a time when making music together was limited, I refocused my usually larger-scale compositional efforts to smaller scale works, exploring how to exercise all possible options within works for solo instruments which often involved the use of electronics.
When I Dream is a meditation and a process piece, where the works is as much about performing for yourself as it is presenting a final product to an audience. The work encourages finding a location and time of day to record each of the meditations along with a prerecorded piano track. After the cycle of seven days of audio capturing, the work is complete. The score outlines additional live performance considerations with prerecorded tracks and loop pedals.
