Product details

A Curious Misadventure has undergone six title changes over the course of its composition. The spirit of this work stemmed from my own feelings of excitement, awe and wonder (with a hint of danger) watching Space-X launch and land three rocket boosters for the first time. I remember a sense of adventure, cautiousness, fear, and eventually loneliness as the small payload of the rocket took off and then hurtled into orbit, looking insignificant and lost amid the scope of the greater universe behind it. While these sets of feelings and experiences were a map, the piece took on a character of its own as it unfolded. This perhaps echoed my own journey to America which was full of a similar excitement and fear, and feelings of insignificance and being lost in the vastness of New York City. The work shifted towards becoming more contemplative of a journey of mishaps, persistence and unexpected beauty, rather than something explicitly prescriptive or programmatic.
