Ulysses Awakes was created in response to composer John Woolrich’s piece for strings of the same name and featured in a short film made as part of a residency at Aldeburgh Music. It takes inspiration from the text of Ulysses’ first aria in Claudio Monteverdi's opera Il ritorno d'Ulisse in patriaon which Woolrich’s piece was based.
