Master of Music thesis
"...And Silver Lining" for orchestra explores the idea of creating "clouds" of sound and having the musical elements within the "clouds" gradually spin out of their textures and reveal themselves during the course of the piece. The "silver lining" refers to how the "clouds" of pitches and rhythms are often doubled and outlined by various instruments of contrasting colors.
