I have another one for ya. This was a minute piece that I submitted as part of a contest in my composition studio in 2016, where the composers were given a piece of artwork and asked to write a sixty-second piece based on that. This was one of two pieces I wrote for two different pieces of artwork- this one was what was essentially a miniature metalwork sculpture of Lake Michigan, with many different layers and parts.
All That You Are, I suppose, attempts to capture all of those layers and complexities in sixty seconds, or something. Actually, I wrote this the night before the deadline when I realized in a panic I’d spent too long on the other piece, and didn’t think much of this one at all.
It wound up winning second. Go figure.
