Irresolution

September 22nd, 2005

Irresolution first began as a duet written with a floor mate from the dorms my freshman year. We worked on the guitar chord progression together, he wrote some vocals, and I wrote the cello part. During the Fall 2005 semester, I reinvented the piece by finding the original cello part, and piecing together the rest. The acoustic guitar part is similar to the original, and the piano melody is based on the original vocal melody, or at least what I remember of it. The mandolin and classical guitar parts were added to better use my fellow members of the Contemporary Music Ensemble, whose performance of this piece can be heard on the CD.

Performers:

  • Cello, Kent Heberling
  • Mandolin, Allen Russell
  • Piano, Riles Walsh
  • Guitar, Chris Young
  • Guitar, Karl Lerud
