There was a Mystic Reality we Lived in Once

for saxophone quartet

commissioned by Lisa Keeney.


There was a Mystic Reality We Lived in Once

program note.

grandiose and noise and world, I was moving back and back,

a slow and quiet thing approaching an early life

brooding in mists and in song – back the theatres, back the gyms

round and round the memory backwards to swing sets and boas –

until the desolate topography – I was a child, in glamour, in heels –

let’s all shout our multiple histories celebrating complexity of past realities

on histories into the skyclouds – within the past, before the past, before

we will shout memory, as there was concern with a sense

within the reality, all we knew – of self – of what humanness was.
