Recalling a dream is difficult without practicing. Some keep a journal; others share their stories with friend. For me, I remember my dreams by a general imagery, its general color (not that every dream is in color-sometimes they come in black and white), and sometimes a tune, a chord, or a sound impression. This piece uses both harmonic and melodic materials that I have had dreamt of before.

Many thanks to Dan Kocurek for commissioning this piece for his senior recital in Spring 2007.
