The Distant Light

The Distant Light, commissioned by Ensemble Nieuwe Muziek, tells the story of a girl trapped inside her room. Watching the world outside in the midst of winter. Even though all the trees are barren, the sun shines through them, making them appear full of leaves.

The text was written by Elea Bekkers. Illustrations by Paul van Gemen.

Performed by Ensemble Nieuwe Muziek at the Utrecht Conservatory.
