Thought I’d put something a little more personal here.
One morning a while ago I woke up feeling somewhat out of sorts. In this melancholy state of mind I set about writing something that reflected it. Luckily I was able to get something out. What I find interesting is how, after producing something that I felt authentically described that point in time, the piece took the weight of those emotions on itself and carried them. Afterwards I was able to go on with the rest of the day, back to normal. Here it is.
Many thanks to Steve Luck for featuring this in the Northern Guild of Composers monthly podcast.
