One Eye Closed (2017) 


13:30 mins.


Oboe and String Quartet


“One Eye Closed” is based on the idea that with one eye we experience the outer world and with the other, look inward. That inward-looking eye does need not be open but is able to see just as clearly.  My goal for this piece was to roam around in the inner world, without a goal or a set path. The soulful Oboe seemed a good voice for that journey – singing long lines over more dense string writing.
