“As with most of my work, I have a concept running through my head which is usually related to my current surroundings. As the the country shuts down due to the covid-19 issue and watching society anxiously awaiting the “reopening” opportunities to start, the composition started to send signals to me in regards to the compositions title. It started to feel like and reminded me of the legendary symbolic lamp that is placed front center of a performing stage.” – William Gantt

The legendary “Ghost Light” that is placed on center stage when the theater goes dark and remains on until the doors reopen. A symbolic metaphor for whats happening in todays society.

Using that concept as a symbolic metaphor to what our country is going through. Hopefully we will be able to turn off the Ghost Light and return what we know as normal.

The composition is A-B-A form. The “B” section is when the Ghost Light is turned on.
