  • October 09, 2008 I am currently working on this peice..

    It is a story told through human vocal sound effects. A baby asleep, an unknown man kidnaps the baby, the man runs from the police--with the baby. The climax of the peice is when the baby is killed by the man. In front of cops and neighbors. Next the...

    man is killed. The emotion brings everyone to their knees. Tears. Everything.

  • September 29, 2006 Truly unlike anything I've ever heard

    I was able to perform this piece with my high school choir in 1999. My teacher knew the composer personally and was able to convey to us the attitude and approach to be used when singing this hauntingly beautiful piece. As I remember, the composer's young son was kidnapped...

    and was either never found or was killed. The lyrics are such that no real words are used, only whines, moans, and cries as a child would make. Hopefully, an example of the music will be posted to portray the artistry and perhaps sorrow weaved beautifully in. This music is truly unlike any you've ever performed or heard and can bring tears to the eyes of any audience member.
