Melle Heij Ruminations
Duration: 15'
After suffering an untimely demise at the hands of you-know-what in 2020, my graduation piece Ruminations (2020) is now back for the 2022 edition of the Composers Festival. It is a solemn exploration of a dream world brimming with crystalline mountains of celestial color, desolate moors echoing with fading memories, and the menacing pulsations of obscured machinery.

Apollonio Maiello solastalgia
Duration: 7'
solastalgia is a piece about the extreme emtional distress due to an enviromental change. In this case, the enviromental status is translated to a simple harmonic progression. Drenched with melancholy and the feeling of loss, this piece is an auditive rendering of the negative feelings associated with change of a seemingly safe condition.

Philip Przybyło Meduza for amplified string trio and electronics
Meduza is an aggressive string trio which exploits the metallic and physical aspects of strings. In combination with the electronics, the piece opens with a raw explosion of energy birthed from varying bow speed and pressure and closes with faint echoes of a love song by the French- Baroque composer Michel Lambert. Meduza is the second in a series of pieces written about squishy and floppy creatures, the first one being Ameba from 2019.
