Black Dog (noun) melancholy or depression.
The unknown, unknowable workings of the mind are a source of much interest and many questions to me. Where does our sense of self reside? How do we know who we are? When two dear friends recently went through periods of mental fragility, their experiences dominated my own mind, and manifested themselves in this work.
Instrumentation: Guitar (mildly amplified), 2 violins, viola, cello.
Duration: 15 min.
Contents note: The work has prelude, 3 movements, postlude.
