The tone Poem Mind’s Eye Inverted, borrows from the jazz musicians experience and explores the outward communication of ideas that are instinctual, visceral and intuitive, through lyrical musical gestures. An abstract dialogue between the woodwinds, brass and strings in the middle section of the piece alludes to the improvisational interaction that happens in a jazz setting. Parts of the composition employs what I call tone fields, which are subsets of available tonal pitches that varies in each octave.
