dreamer//precipice is a love song, a reckoning, a looking back at the beginning of something special. I’ve been fortunate to work with Nick St. Croix, my partner and collaborator, to create a soundscape representative both of where I am as a composer and where we are (I think) as humans.
If I’m being honest, though, this piece was his birthday present. He might not get to perform it live for awhile (thanks, COVID), but it was important to me that I find a way to realize the sounds and the thoughts while they made sense. So, in many ways, this was the driving force behind WEAKNESS. I’m so glad it worked out this way.
Written for (and sorta commissioned by) Nick St. Croix.
Run time: approx. 4’30”. Range: E1-G#4. (Don’t look at me that way. He can do it. He sounds great. So can you. And there’s only one E1, I promise.)
- Recorded on my album WEAKNESS
