The Empty Hours is also an extended meditation on the loneliness and feelings of ennui and meaninglessness that are prevalent in contemporary Western societies. Elements of Spanish Renaissance music blended with a more contemporary language have served as my principal source of thematic and structural inspiration for the work. Musically, The Empty Hours combines traditional compositional techniques with modern and post-modern musical elements, such as operatic recitatives treated with contemporary motifs and polyrhythms. The Empty Hours thus acquires a dual character, at once traditional and contemporary, maintaining a coherent narrative which is elaborated over a harmonic and melodic foundation that might be described as non-atonal.
