Meditation on the Self (2011)
Meditation on the Self is a musical exploration of the concept of self-alienation. It consists of a painful, at times violent, struggle, one seemingly without redemption. At the climax of the work, I quote a hymn I wrote entitled Lead Me, Savior—a simple, direct cry of human existence.
This work was premiered by the composer in March 2011 at St. Olaf College.
