About “Into The Light”

“Into The Light” was written for the 2018 Cortona Sessions for New Music for soprano voice, flute, marimba, and piano. “Into The Light” was premiered by Rose Hegele (voice), Stefanie Proulx (flute), Noel Holloway (marimba), and Tristan Greeno (Piano).

This piece is about the moments pre-dawn. Many days I will wake up in the morning or middle of the night and need to maneuver through my surroundings in the dark in an effort to not wake up my roommate. This piece begins with the idea of waking up in total darkness, and reaching out into space in order to orient yourself and navigate through the darkness. The latter half of this piece is inspired by the sight of light slowly filling a room and darkness gently being extinguished.

Before the dawn

Reach into the void

Dark house

Your walls lay creaking

And its dark outside

Slowly fades into view

And its dark outside

And it feels like floating

Reaching out into nothing

And its dark outside

Go out into the light
