This was a composition I did in 2008, based on a story a friend told me about her wallet being stolen from her office while she napped at work. It’s still one of my favorite pieces.
part 1: the low notes are that sneaky wallet thief while the high notes the sound of my friend breathing during a gentle nap
part 2: the wallet ninja is getting closer, enters her office, slides the door open, and is peeking around (suspense)
part 3: she is drifting off into a deeper sleep, while he finds the wallet and is quietly sneaky-happy
part 4: the stirring part, as the wallet thief is fleeing the scene while my friend is soaring through the air with her dog in her dream. imagine cutting back and forth between that set of images.
