Towards Light is a reflection on the news cycle from 2017. In the work, the year is divided into four quarters, each corresponding to the four movements in the piece. The first movement focuses around the Women’s March from January; the second moves to the United States’ withdrawal from the Paris Agreement; the third focuses on the horrific events that transpired in Charlottesville; the fourth focuses on increased tensions with nuclear powers in the world.
