Not very long or difficult to play, but compositionally clever and emotionally moving.

Duration: 0m52s

Composer’s Notes:

“In college, Kelly Morse knew that I often created melodies by using the letters of a person’s name (continuing the letters of the alphabet up the scale past the letter “g”), and he asked me to play the theme that would be created by using the letters of HIS name; at the time, I was a bit stumped to make it sound interesting: d-e-e-e-d-f-a-d-e-e

“Years later, he reminded me that he’d been disappointed that his name didn’t make for a good melody — and I decided that I had to be a good enough composer to make it work.

“Here is the result.”
