Sun Figment (2002) cortege-chorale for solo harp was written for Musik Fabrik and is dedicated to Jean-Thierry Boisseau.
This work incorporates both elements of a cortege (ceremonial procession) and a chorale. Chorale and cortege ideas are juxtaposed throughout. The first part of the work presents a veiled and dark harmonic area. The second part of the work takes the same material and re-casts and develops it in the context of harmonies that grow ever warmer and brighter.
