Three distinct elements define the sound and structure of this piece. Each one of them is created to give musical life to a particular emotional state. The colors of the orchestra´s low register are used to describe a state of pain. A fast, oscillating chromatic motif wandering through all instrumental sections, underlaid with small changes of harmony, evokes a mood of despair. Thirdly, an elegant melody, accompanied by simple harmonies is used to describe the feeling of recovery from loss and hurt. The compositional work of Daniel Davis focuses on spreading out the whole orchestral palette to explore and experience the relationship of sonic elements through color, sound, and emotion.
