Unfinished Narcissism - ICE Ensemble


PDF score

This work is dedicated to the Water Protectors at the Standing Rock Native American reservation that borders between North and South Dakota. The title, Unfinished Narcissism represents the struggle between the ever growing reach and control of major corporations versus the American public, and the citizens of the world. I truly believe that Standing Rock represents a moment in time that will soon affect all peoples. In other words, in time all peoples will have a "Standing Rock" that they will have to forcibly reconcile with.
