Work Overview

Sin Luz - without light - is a sublime and introspective solo guitar piece. It features a lamenting, heartfelt melody and a broody harmonic palette.

Commissioned by John Couch for his 2013 CD release and tour. I wanted this piece to really show off the beautiful tone of his guitar and the magnificent control of John's playing.

The piece emerged during a time when I was feeling completely lost - when my husband was seriously ill in hospital. I was facing the seriousness of potentially losing him and the devastation one feels when confronted with that situation.
