Arboretum (2023)

More Info

Arboretum is a four movement suite exploring musical Americanisms.

Golden Larch is infused with a Copeland-esque energy.

White Pine evokes the sentimentality of a snow-blanketed winter landscape during the Christmas season.

Red Cedar features lush arpeggio-driven sonorities with melodies that dissolve as quickly as they emerge.

Blue Spruce branches out stylistically and is rooted in a light-hearted funk groove.

00:00 / 04:19

Driftwood takes inspiration from Poem on his birthday by Dylan Thomas. I was 35 years old and reflecting on life and the passage of time when I composed this piece.

 

This sandgrain day in the bent bay's grave

He celebrates and spurns

His driftwood thirty-fifth wind turned age;

Herons spire and spear.

- Dylan Thomas (from Poem on his birthday)

Fair Winds and Following Seas is a solemn farewell that acknowledges loss while anticipating newness. It was composed after the passing of a loved one, in the midst of the global coronavirus pandemic, and is dedicated to "the departed".

 

let me square the yards, while we may, old man,

and make a fair wind of it homewards,

to go on a better voyage than this.

 

- Herman Melville (from Moby Dick)

More Info

Firstborn of the Dead is a piece with religious themes inspired by my time as a church Music Director/Pastor.

The Garden is a celebration of innocence, naivety, and peacefulness.

The Curse is about the grief, frustration and fear that accompany undesired consequences.

The Promise provides reassurance and hope but is not a return to innocence. Consequence is fulfilled rather than removed.
