Karen Gourlay - Dreamscape

Dreamscape (2004) – Karen Gourlay (b.1962)
Dreamscape is inspired by the idea of a dream as a series of thoughts, sensations, and images passing through a person's mind. It is a free flowing presentation of ides, circling around, subtly distorted on their return. Perception of time is blurred as material with frequent meter changers flows into repetitive, hypnotic-like figuration that in turn flows back into more free material.

Duration 6’30 approx.
Dreamscape was premiered by rarescale (Carla Rees, alto flute & David Black, guitar)
