Intrusive thoughts are involuntary feelings that pop up randomly in our minds. While a majority of people experience this, the phenomenon is most damaging in individuals who have OCD, body dysmorphic disorder and ADHD leading to high levels of anxiety. Intrusive Thoughts is like a stream of consciousness bombarded, often unexpectedly, by unwanted distractions. These distractions lead to wild contrasts of emotion that portray an active, anxious, and exhausted mind.
Intrusive Thoughts was composed for SOLI Chamber Ensemble and the 2018 Alba Music Festival in Alba, Italy.
