Disquiet Voices is the second work I conceived in the aftermath of Hurricane Michael while I was living without power. When forced to live in the dark and unnaturally quiet surroundings of a city with no electricity, people come face-to-face with their anxiety when they would normally be too distracted to do so. These thoughts, sometimes unsettling, sometimes playful, and sometimes just going in circles for what seems like an eternity, become the music of Disquiet Voices as they manically dance through the ensemble players to create a conversation within a single mind.
