Commissioned by the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art

Over Every Open Field was inspired by Ed Ruscha’s painting No Man’s Land, which pairs an outline of the state of Oklahoma with a distended question mark. This leaves the work ambiguous and open to interpretation; I attempted to capture this uncertainty by writing a melody that was questioningly optimistic. This pastoral melody journeys through various treatments before returning to an image of the original iteration, ending with a cryptic unresolved chord.
