  Work Details  
  In this early work, two basic melodies are used with a lot of explosive texture underneath. The piece is based on a kid who is lying down in bed watching a window on a stormy and rainy night. The atmosphere outside is dark and scary however inside it is safe and comfortable. Melodies represent comfort and sweetness while the explosive textures that of darkness and fear. It was my intention to show how two different things can simultaneously exist in a space. Life is full of dualities, for example: dark and bright, happy and unhappy, yes and no. The components of such pairs cannot exist by themselves, without the other.
