This piece is about the anxiety of going to the doctor, the effect of taking too many pills, and the frustration of not getting the proper medication!
I - At the Doctor
II - Under the Influence
III - Back to the Doctor
To the conductor:
This piece present challenges regarding accidentals and dissonant chords but consists for the most part of simpler rhythms and texture. There is much use of repeating patterns. The use of dynamics is of importance throughout the whole piece and should present an interesting challenge.
