The music for WATCHING comes from a chamber opera, GHOSTS, which I composed in 1993. The opera, based on a story by Paul Auster, focuses on a man who has been hired to watch another man for as long as necessary. It concentrates on his state of mind, the way he begins to notice things that he never saw before, the increasing loneliness which descends and how watching another person so intimately seems akin to watching himself.
