Programme Note:
Charles Ives has been a huge influence on me as a composer, and when approaching the theme of war for this composition I looked to his use of civil war tunes and wild military marching band music. I am fascinated by music that is meant to encourage troops into battle, to inspire them to somehow act against their own mortality. Songs such as Le chant de l'oignon were sung by soldiers as they marched into bloody battle; its energetic, patriotic and even playful tone stands in such stark contrast against the darkness of war. Dans la nuit profonde exploits these two superimposed layers of emotion — the optimistic jingoism that covers up ever-present fear.
