It Comes in Waves (9' 30'')
Premiered: April 2014 by Foot in the Door; Millard Auditorium, Hartford, CT
It Comes in Waves is inspired by my move across the country to pursue my masters in music composition. I was filled with many different emotions, happy, sad, excited, lonely, frightened, but not all the time. There would be points in the day where it would all hit me and I realized that I was actually living this life that I chose. This is where the name of the work comes from: not feeling them all at once, but instead in waves.
