Night Vision is cast in two movements and is loosely
programmatic by nature, but not in structure.
Astronaut Jeffrey Hoffman's description of the Earth at night as seen from space created in my
mind a general feel for the piece:
"At night the universe opens up. Darkness gives you a new perspective both on Earth and the sky.
The high contrast of city lights against Earth's dark surface makes human civilisation more visible at
night than during the day. City lights provide excellent beacons to guide you around the human
geography of our planet, all the way to the horizon."
Instrumentation: Flute, oboe, clarinet in B flat, horn in F, bassoon.
