Ripple Mirror 2020
Commissioned by the English Chamber Orchestra and first performed at Plymouth New Theatre on the 22nd Feb 2020 by the orchestra and soloist Stephanie Gonley, conducted by the composer.
A painter’s brush dipped in the endless blue,
washes the sea with ever-changing sunset colours.
At the water's edge, an infinite mirror extends.
In fading light, gentle ripples bend, refract and multiply,
until the reflection is no more reality’s imagine.
A dreamer sinks into the endless blue,
bathed in ever-changing sunset colours.
In Lyra’s Northern Lights, other worlds shimmer in the sky.
In our seas, gentle ripples bend, refract and multiply,
so that we may glimpse our other worlds.
