Commissioned by NTR Zaterdagmatinee (with financial support of the Performing Arts Funds).

A piece for piano and orchestra evoking images, moods and atmospheres one might experience in a state of hypnagogia - the borderland state between wake and sleep -, ranging from the ethereally delicately ethereal to the wildly frenzied. There are four movements:

I. Prelude (Strange Glowing Shapes)
II. Running through Lucid Dreams
III. Chorale and Landscape
IV. Final
