Exploration of found sounds to create soundscapes
DREAM WITHIN A DREAM
Originally written for soprano Kelly Gallagher, this art song is set to the poetry of Edgar Allen Poe. The text, written in 1827 entitled a Dream within a Dream, explores regret and self-inflicted immolation: a common theme of Poe's Poetry. The art song draws on musical aesthetic of 1827, but uses contemporary language and style.
