Dreamscape

composer
1977

 
Dreamscape (1977) was a vocalise, composed by Dad alongside Love song, for Peter & Meriel Dickinson. My father was trying to express the ‘unconscious language of the soul’—a kind of dream language, which is made especially haunting due to the oscillating quarter tones which appear at the beginning. A few years ago, when our pianist Lech Napierała and cellist Piotr Hausenplas were looking for a piece to play (and no singer was available), I suggested they try substituting the vocal part with the cello. You might be wondering why we have the instrumental version here but, actually, my mother and I much prefer it this way—particularly as my father had always admired the cello for its ‘singing quality’.
