I Slow Down (2020)

for two pianos and optional video (Q-lab session available from the composer)

Composed during the 2020 COVID Lockdown, this piece translates the first wave of COVID deaths in Minnesota – where my father, brother and sister all work as physicians – into a musical form. The piece has an optional video element, with spoken text and photography of doctors behind their newly required masks.

The work is being recorded by Los Angeles based piano duo HOCKET, and will be given its world premiere by them on the piano spheres series on 23rd February 2021
