Future Feelings

for piano and electronics

Future Feelings was composed shortly after the birth of my first kid and I was watching him slowly wake up to the world, especially to sound. During that time I was experimenting a lot to figure out what kinds of sounds would comfort him, and some of those sounds found their way into the piece: white noise, synth pads, hypnotically repetitive rhythms and melodies. There is a kind of nostalgia or yearning for childhood that permeates the piece, but I am generally suspicious of nostalgia, so that suspicion is there too.

Future Feelings was commissioned and premiered by Nadia Shpachenko.

Score and recording coming soon!
