The composer writes:

Body of Light (2018) was written in memory of the German composer Hermann Seidl (1958–2018) who died after several years of extended illnesses in which his physical body deteriorated almost completely. Even during this period, he continued to compose and dedicated his final organ work (Three Mantras) to me, Gesine Hagemann, and Andreas Willscher.

My piece in his memory is a “continuum,” an atmospheric quasi-cortège whose music unfolds very slowly. (Perhaps it imagines Seidl’s spirit, as conveyed through his wonderful output of musical compositions in many genres, as a body of light, transcending the physical body’s failings.)
