Dreams Unwind, for piano and live, interactive electronics was composed for pianist Keith Kirchoff as part of the 2016 SPLICE summer institute. This piece is a reflection on feelings of disillusionment, and how things may have diverged from the path we thought we were walking. Never really finding resolution, the piece walks the line between hopeful optimism and mocking contempt, leaving us with the feeling of looking towards an uncertain future.
