2014. 4-5 minutes. Composed for Free University Berlin’s Composition Showcase

 

Slow Dance was composed and premiered in Berlin for the composition course at Free University Berlin during the summer of 2014. The text is selected excerpts from David St. John’s nostalgic poem of the same name, expressing a protagonist’s yearning for home in the countryside, and rejecting the social formalities and drama of high society life.
