Blue Fog City, 1922
Female Vocal Trio
About the Piece:
This piece was inspired by a recurring dream I had as a child in which I found myself alone at night in a foggy old city with cobblestone streets and gaslamps, but no people or cars. Everything in this stylized and cartoonish city was deep blue, from the streets to the old-fashioned shops to the two-dimensional background where the sky should have been. Things were not as they seemed in this city; the buildings appeared to shrink if I approached them, and whenever I reached a door, it was too small for me to enter. Every time I awoke from this dream, although unnerved, I wished I could go back.
