This piece was inspired by the visual world of Winsor McCay’s unmistakable cartoon series “Little Nemo in Slumberland” and “Little Nemo in the Land of Wonderful Dreams”. The music obeys the stimulating logic of dreams and arrays itself in the tradition of the “fantasy”. I have tried to tailor the piece especially for the dedicatee, See Siang Wong, and his impressive pianism.
