Carson Farley Film Music , for piano, cello, and flute Film Music was composed for a commercial video project for sculptor R. Carlson. Originally scored for piano, string quartet, and synthesizer, this version has been arranged for piano, cello, and flute. Though I am usually a structural composer, this piece was written quickly and entirely from a visual perspective to conform to the visual content of the video project. It has a very simple surface texture with themes, transitions, and modulations from section to section. carsonicsproductions.com/ Aaron Keyt Music for Wallace , for piano While living in Somerville, MA for a couple years, we adopted an old, neglected spinet piano. We named the piano Wallace. I wrote an album of short, mostly simple pieces for Wallace, a few of which will be played at the Salon. Ian McKnight The Trees Awaken , for alto flute, cello, and piano This tone poem describes a sleeping forest that comes to life with dancing tree folk befo
