MELIA WATRAS: LUMINOUS POINTS
for violin solo (2013)
World Premiere: Michael Jinsoo Lim, violin; January 13, 2014, Seattle, WA
I began with the image of a mysterious, secret garden, where the night sky, brilliantly studded with unending stars, is reflected in a pond. The sky becomes the water and the water the sky.
I wrote Luminous Points for violinist Michael Jinsoo Lim, hoping to imbue the work with his gentle character and molto dolce E string playing.
