There is no exact translation of Uneen putoan in English. It might best translated as ‘I’m falling into a dream/sleep’ or ‘I’m dropped into a dream’. In Finnish the word ‘uni’ is two-fold, meaning both the act of sleeping and the dreams you have while sleeping. I took inspiration from the physical experiences we have when falling asleep such as the feeling that you’re floating in air, falling down, or the sudden flinch that can wake us up. This piece was written for and dedicated to the International Contemporary Ensemble (NY) and had its premiere at the Viitasaari Time of Music festival in July of 2018.
