Work Overview

On my last album, Dialmentia, I had a four-movement trilogy based on my recurring nightmares. For this album I was searching for a subject for another centerpiece. When I started writing for this album, I had recently become a father, and decided that the experience could provide enough material for several trilogies!

Conceivilization is the first movement. Children don't just appear, you have to make them, and that is what this piece is about! As it takes two, I decided to have two soloists at a time for each of the movements. I will let you decided who is playing what role. One thing I really like in all good music is the climax, and this story is all about that. You will also hear the 'Oh, what have I just done?' moment after! Conceivilization was commissioned and premiered by Sydney Conservatorium Big Band.
