Eating Clouds is a baby’s view from a moving carry cot. How it might familiarise the clouds and abstract shapes and prints of everyday objects into its most essential needs and desires. It is comprised of three movements.

I wanted to write a moody, quick texture-changing piece that suddenly alternates between the bold and fiery, the subtle and delicate gestures to the puckish and cautious moments.
