chansons por m_m_re andrea la rose (1972- )
performed by andrea and alejandro. I wrote these pieces for me and my brother Jeremy to play at my grandmother’s funeral. My mémére, as we canucks like to call our grandmothers, was a sociable woman with a wonderfully pleasant disposition, who tempered the good-natured, snarky, wise-cracking, jokesters that the rest of the family were. I believe that funerals should be as happy as possible, so I wrote two pieces to reflect the bittersweet nature of losing the ones we love to ‘the other side.’
painted an improvisation for paint and musicians
ryo noda (1948- ) mai
performed by erin.
