The title A Dream of Waking comes from some Buddhist writings, and was used in a passage describing the peculiarities of our human consciousness.  The phrase kept haunting me as I was writing this piece, and seemed to capture some of its qualities: a restless state of self-searching, an ambiguous sense of directionality, a dreamlike sense of time.  For me, the piece almost seems to be struggling with itself to comprehend just whether it is awake, or dreaming, ...or something in between.

Approx. Duration: 13'20"
