Bring me all of your dreams,
Bring me all your
That I may wrap them
In a blue cloud-cloth
Away from the too-rough fingers
Of the world.

(Written for Major Portfolio 2014)
"Satya" is a central concept in Indian religions. It is a Sanskirt word that loosely translates into English as "Unchangeable", "that which pervades the universe in all it's constancy" It is also interpreted as "absolute truth" or "reality"
The incomprehensible speech excerpt used in the piece is taken from a John Coltrane interview held in Japan, 1965. It briefly focuses on the idea of and Man's perception/understanding of "the truth"

Chaucer: The Shipman's Tale
Three Short Character Sketches
The Merchant's Wife
The Bastard Monk
Inspired by one of Geoffrey Chaucer's Canterbury Tales, this collection of three short sketches are loosely based upon the characters from "The Shipman's Tale." This folk tale tells of a miserly, dim-witted merchant whose avaricious wife is constantly drinking and partying whilst being unfaithful with his "close friend", the not-so-holy, shrewd monk.
Performed by Trinity Laban Wind Orchestra (Brass Ensemble) at Blackheath Halls, February 2013.
