Two Moods (2022)

flute, clarinet

“Two Moods” was composed for a theater performance introducing young children to abstract art concepts, with animation by Bridget Allaire. I was given the specific assignment of setting the mood for the beginning and ending scenes, in which a little girl drifts off to sleep and wakes up. The two brief movements are titled after the words I was given, “Mysterious” and “Placid and comforting”.
