'Cityscape' is the full set of 3 pieces I wrote in attempt to capture my initial impressions of city life. This is probably the most satisfied I've been with anything I've ever written, so I hope you enjoy it!
As the name implies, this piece is about city lights, especially at dusk and dawn. Sparkling endless rows of headlights and street lamps, flashing through your windows as you drive through city streets at 3am. It rises slightly as the lights become more plentiful and iridescent. Then just as it seems to be fading out, it erupts into a whirlwind of colours, swirling through hot summer air.
Considerably less 'chilled out' than the other two, 'Obsessions' is about the grueling every day races of 21st century city life. The faceless crowds and the hectic pervasive pulse. Superficially, it's about the layer of filth and grime which coats the urban core of a city (something I take a peculiar pleasure in). Individualistically, it's also about the mind's tendency to become caught up in a single idea or goal, and to pursue and reach out for it tirelessly.
This impression is one of complete stillness and calm. Specifically, it’s about the late evening when the hectic pulse finally begins to die down. More specifically yet, the experience of this time period from the rooftop of my building, where I spent many late evenings during my first weeks in Winnipeg. Thousands of lit windows, each showing tiny fragments of people’s lives. People with experiences and ambitions equally as complex and rich as your own (as an 18 year old, often moreso!). It makes you feel quite insignificant, in a relieving and pleasurable way.
