While composing this work, I was considering proposing to the love of my life after 7 years together. Neither one of us had much faith in marriage, but we both wanted to find a way to bear our uncertainty about the future together.

I wanted my composition to capture this acute sense of uncertainty, using music to express something I could not articulate. I found a theme to capture the mixed sensation of fear, joy, and self-doubt, and reiterated it with rhythmic, tonal, and timbral diversity throughout the piece. The theme does not have a natural conclusion, which expresses the uncertainty I felt in my life when I composed it, but also my desire to keep the music moving forward. I needed to find a conclusion, but did not know where it would occur. As I became comfortable writing for the orchestra, and finding unique sounds in all its corners, I found the ending I was looking for.

After months of writing, I titled the piece "Faith in a Future." A month later I proposed to my wife.

I continue find meaning in my composition's music and its title, especially today, with such uncertainty in the world.
