At every moment, I am dying : for orchestra / James Wade.

Library shelf no. Q 784.2/WAD 1 [Available for loan]

Work Overview

The title at every moment, I am dying is a phrase from The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying by Sogyal Rinponche.
Rather than reflecting a morbid fascination with death, these words should be considered as an expression of the natural cycle of life. The music was through-composed using continuously changing "harmonic realms"; a parallel to the impetus for the piece.
