The Dimensions EP
Dimensions is a collection of pieces I wrote between 2007 and 2009 and the title alludes to the various possibilities that can take place in different realities. These realities include; life, death, fear, being unconscious/asleep and also the alternate realities that string theory suggest. In Your Dreams pt i and ii for example, were written after reading (and speaking) to various people who claimed to have spoken to people who were no longer alive, (while they were dreaming). While the Halloween Prelude was written from the perspective of a person experiencing a nightmare and the inability to awake - various horror characters inspired this piece!.
Perhaps the lighter section of Dimensions are the pieces are Oscar and The Pagan Wedding. Oscar was written as a lullaby for a friend's child - and attempts to capture the innocence of childhood - while The Pagan Wedding is a piece that celebrates marriage through the perspective of a hand fasting. It was actually composed while waiting in the rain for the bride to arrive... It seems no matter what realities we choose, some things remain comfortingly similar.
