At Distance (2022), for Voice and Mixed Ensemble
"At Distance" is a musical composition that explores the theme of distance and its effect on the human experience. It uses evocative lyrics to create a sense of longing and yearning for connection and transcendence. The song reflects on the relationship between man and the natural world, and the struggle to transcend the ego, the sorrow for the future, and the burden of modern human beings. The use of harmonic material aim to deceive the listeners, playing on the paradoxical borders between the feelings of tonality and atonality, adding to the sense of longing and yearning.
