CITY,  LOOKING IN 
FOR SATB CHOIR

 

DURATION: 5'00" 

A NOTE FROM THE COMPOSER 
"City, Looking In" examines the feeling of looking at a place you love from far away, taking an outsider's perspective, and seeing it as something other than what you know; in place of a friend, you find a monster. 

You--
star-eater, light-feeder, 
never a murmur of sleep, 
always the hum and the haze of half-dreaming, 
always awake, 
heave the night from the day-- 

when do you breathe?

"City, Looking In" was premiered on April 13, 2018 in New Haven, CT. It was performed by Isobel Anthony , Addy Sterrett, Emma Simmons, Bradley Sharpe, Hannah Goodwillie, Will Watson, Zak Fletcher and Edward Vogel. It was conducted by Jacob Gelber. Recording by Jack Lawrence.
