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.
Instrumentation: 2 flutes, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets (2nd doubling bass clarinet), 2 bassoons, 2 horns, 2 trumpets, tenor trombone, bass trombone, tuba, timpani, percussion, harp, strings (divided into 4 violin sections, 2 viola sections, 2 cello sections, 2 double bass sections).
Duration: 5 min.
