Island Unto Myself is the 2nd track on Mourning in the Rain album just released on 9/11/2019.
Island unto Myself has a sad tranquil, contemplative ambience as if one were alone on an island in the middle of the Pacific ocean. The flutes and clarinet add a very dreamy quality to the music, while the cello echoes sadness and loneliness. Island Unto Myself is a dreamy yet sad piece composed for Chamber Ensemble of 2 flutes, 1 clarinet, and string ensemble. It expresses the emotions and feelings that envelope us during times of sadness - that feeling of 'aloneness' because sorrow is so personal and individual to each of us that we shut down to process and heal.
