'Inspiration is often taken from your waking state and occurrences that you have experienced in daily life. In my piece, R.E.M., I have taken inspiration from the nocturnal world of dreams.

R.E.M. explores a transient subject through an immersive experience that touches upon sight, touch, sound, and smell.'
