I wasn’t satisfied with my original piece, so I decided to try again. Unfinished as of now, but I’m very pleased with the direction it is heading.
Inspired by one of my all time favorite songs, Oh Death. We all have a different relationship with death. Some of us avoid it, while others tempt it. Sometimes we see it coming, and sometimes it takes us by surprise. But no matter what we do, death comes for us. This piece is a memento mori, a reminder to live life to the fullest, and to consider how you will greet death when it comes for you.
The most well known version of Oh Death is sung by Ralph Stanley, but my personal favorite is sung by Jen Titus.
