Oboe + String Quartet
I. Sunrise Reverie
II. News Feed
Synchronous is in two movements. The two movements are in five minutes and each supposedly to be happening at the same time. Movement 1, Sunrise Reverie is in one location, where an overwhelmingly beautiful sunrise takes place. Mov. 2, News Feed is that same amount of time, passing by as different events taking place in other parts of the world, disconnected imageries that one finds in a social media website stream.
