Song 13

My daughter does a lot of painting, and although she has not had any formal training, she’s really quite good. I got inspired by some of her works and wrote this music to accompany a slideshow of her works.

The main section is in 15/8 time – divided more or less into a measure of 6/4 plus a measure of 3/8. The bridge shifts to 4/4, ending with a bar of 11/8, and a bar of 7/8 before returning to the main groove in 15/8.

The Relaxed Abalone

Abalone1
This is the first in my series of what I’m calling “Art Songs”.  Taking a cue from Charles Ives, these are piano and vocal pieces, the text being various pieces of poetry set to music.  The text for this piece is an example of “found” poetry which poet Rosemary Waldrop came across in The Joy of Cooking and arranged as verse:

Abalone, like inkfish,
needs prodigious pounding
if it has died in a state
of tension.
