Enclosing skies is a new solo work for accordion especially written for Kamila Olas as part of the Arts Council England funded project Connected skies: solo series challenge where composer Angela Elizabeth Slater has set out to write six new works for double bass, cello, flute, accordion, percussion and mezzo soprano between October 2020 – May 2021.

Enclosing skies is the third piece in the Connected skies collection fo solo pieces. All of the pieces are relective of the difficult times of 2020, drawing on a poem authored by Angela Elizabeth Slater as well. Enclosing skies explores the expanse of our world and how these times makes it feel that is it enclosing in around us, growing ever smaller.

When the sky enclosed around me
Shrinking ever smaller
I found woven half dreams
fractured in spaces inbetween
which ache and screams
I tried to shut the noise out
but it echoed right back at me
never to leave or fully be
