Title: Incubus (2010)
Instrumentation: 2-channel fixed media playback
Duration: 02:45

Program Note:

Incubus is inspired by Henry Fuseli's 1781 oil painting The Nightmare. The painting portrays a woman sleeping and dreaming, perhaps in a position that encourages nightmares, while an incubus rests upon her torso. The work inspired a section of Erasmus Darwin's poem The Loves of the Plants.
