About the work
A mood of peaceful sleep permeates this piece if performed by instruments only. In its fullest form the impression is given of 6 people trying to waken 6 others, who might all be having the same dream.
First performance: 2002
Six parts in canon throughout – though all play from the same part. Entries are given for each player using numbers. There is some difficulty for the conductor in conducting the entries – but this is much easier than it first appears! Speakers are optional, but if used they should attempt to characterise the small amount of spoken material there is.
