Programme Note

Composer's Note:

Shy Girl Shouting Music, for soprano, electric guitar, piano and double bass, depicts an exasperating struggle to communicate. Melodic lines abruptly cut off, wordless wails almost escalate into shouts, subtle croaks develop into soaring melodies, and the strings follow in a canon of haunting effects as the vocalist strives to break out of her shell and sing.
