This piano solo gets its initial spark of inspiration from “Sisi Ni Moja” by Jacob Narverud and is composed to reflect the songs and styles of powerful female singers such as Taylor Swift, Rihanna, and P!nk. It was composed for the bat mitzvah of a young woman who is herself creative, inspiring, and powerful.
After getting a surprise pair of tickets to the Oregon Symphony yesterday, I was inspired to create a quick "thank you" composition. It's very rewarding when I can take a whole sentence and create a functional melody from it!
My in-progress narrated work for strings & fixed media (and maybe percussion?), "Amber the Spider" is shaping up nicely. Doing my best to create a timeless story that all ages can enjoy... and still having it be about a spider!
