Insomnia is inspired by the frustration and tension associated with a sleepless night. Those who suffer from this all too common sleep disorder often find themselves performing poorly at work or school while not being able to fulfill daily tasks and duties to the best of their ability. In this piece I wanted to communicate the irritation and anger that one might feel while lying awake. Many people only make their situation worse as they “fight” to find rest; thoughts of stress and anxiety creep in to the equation. This piece is written in the Phrygian mode and allows for teaching opportunities related to church modes.
