‘I just love how you write all that ravishing music about oceans and rivers and the night sky’, she said.

Um... Do I? I quickly opened my compositions folder on my desktop. My fingers scrolled down the files and... she was absolutely right! A disproportionate amount of my vocal music is about bodies of water and/or nocturnal themes. It started with the very first piece I ever wrote back in 2008, a setting of Byron’s S​he Walks in Beauty​, and continues to this day. It’s totally a subconscious thing though, I don’t even realise that it’s happening, so I guess it must be my True Compositional Voice? Who knows.

At any rate, I’m embracing my dark leanings in these N​octurnes.​ The first movement, Pinprick Flicker​ is a metaphor likening the stars to punctuation marks dancing in the sky. The second movement, ​Cloudless,​ is about how the reflection of the moon on water can look so solid, like a path you could walk upon. The third movement ​Lunatic Fringe​ is a kind of midnight fire-lit ritual dance and is dedicated to every single misogynist online who has ever said to me “Why are you so angry? So shrill? Such a feminazi? You’re embarrassing yourself!” Someone should be embarrassed in those conversations. Rest assured, that someone is definitely not me.
