Commissioned by and written for Lewis Banks.
Inspired by David Eagleman’s short story cycle ‘Sum: Forty tales from the afterlives’, this work, entitled Afterlife, comprises of several pieces for Alto Saxophone and Piano, and is conceptualised around a number of speculative stories that Eagleman created that postulate a diverse range of scenarios in which humans might find themselves in the afterlife. Therefore, Afterlife attempts to capture the qualities of a selection of Eagleman’s short stories in a musical context, while pondering their intended meanings and existential (or post-existential) implications.
