Awakening Inevitable for orchestra (2004)
*2006 BMI Student Composer Award
Sustenance. Why not enjoy the things we like sustained? Why not relish in what we like timelessly leaving us in wonderful bliss? ...to take the favorite moment and suspend it... with all its beauty, mystery, experiencing its thrill...its excitement...sustained...exploring it as if it is unknown giving us a sense of danger...risk...that is happiness.
