AVATARS / ten-minute suite for synth and saxaphone - 2009

AVATARS / ten minutes - 2009

My good friends Pat and Melissa Yagiela got married in the summer of 2009, and, as a wedding gift, Sean Patrick, Trevor Edmonds, and I each composed two instrumental pieces of music to mark the occasion, compiling the finished tracks into a mini-album entitled To Iowa. My contribution, Avatars, consisted of an archetypal post-rock build-up, inspired by Pat's long-standing interest in bands like Godspeed You Black Emperor, culminating in a five-minute ambient piece, featuring samples of Pat playing the saxophone that I had recorded in 2006.
