Music Video: "wed"

So happy to share the full music video for my performance of David Lang’s “wed,” made by my good friend Isabela dos Santos.

“wed” is the closing track on my recently released album, Pictures. Written in memory of the conceptual artist Kate Ericson, the piece reflects on a uniquely devastating image: a wedding taking place at a deathbed. “In my piece,” David Lang writes, “the four independent lines of the piano part are made of small changes – a half step up, a whole step down, and each line by itself is not that interesting. Put together, however, they allow the music to rock oddly back and forth between major and minor, between consonance and dissonance, between hope and despair.”
