The piece is called As Dreams Begin, a phrase from the poem 'Homeward Bound' by Moazzam Begg, in Poems from Guantanamo edited by Marc Falkoff (Iowa, 2007).
The work is about how a solo line can magically fill 'space' to give a sense of journeying beyond or outside physical limitations. This idea can be further expanded in performance through the optional use of a classic electronic technique, the delay effect. As the soloist plays, a recent segment of the sound picked up by a microphone is relayed and played against the new material that the soloist has gone on to play.
Only available in the oboe anthology Signals.
