Dionis Dreaming (2002) for mandolin and guitar was commissioned by Duo Ahlert and Schwab.

The title refers to Dionis, a beach region on the north shore of Nantucket Island, Massachusetts USA. This work is one of a variety of pieces deeply connected to the landscape of Nantucket. In this case, the work is about memory and psychological journeys, using the landscape of Dionis as a starting point.
