What is it?

My final project is a Charakterstück composition, or a character piece. Titled, Douze heures d'une journee, French for "twelve hours of a day," the composition is a musical representation of morning, afternoon, and evening. The piece is broken up into 3 movements: 6am-12pm, 12pm-6pm, and 6pm-12am, each with its own character, rhythm, and harmonic contour.


Try listening to the composition with your eyes closed and let the music walk you through a day from sunrise to sunset!
