5 Lenses is a collaborative piece composed by the five founding members of Eclective, with the instrumentation taken from the various instruments and voice types each member plays or sings. To form the piece, each composer wrote one miniature in reaction to the paintings “Chaos” and “Resolution” by American painter Henry Asencio, which were then compiled into a single multi-movement work. As the initial source of inspiration was the same for each composer, the miniatures represent the individual styles and approaches to musical composition held by each member. Each miniature, titled after its creator, shows a common subject viewed through a unique lens.

This is my composed movement that is a part of the larger piece described above.
