I See The City (2009)

In this piece I utilize the Latin phrase "Video Urbem" (pronounced "Wi-deh-oh Ur-bem" and meaning "I see the city") as both source material and subject. Travel, be it purposeful exploration or forced abduction, and the resulting effect of familiarity or detachment is explored through changes in content, timbre, and atmosphere. This piece was heard on the December 3rd, 2009 Oberlin Composition & TIMARA Departments Concert of Student Works
