saenghwang solo improvisation
During the continuing Covid-19 global pandemic, we in NY have been confined to home for nearly a year. In Last year March, life came to an abrupt halt. As a full-time freelance musician, with all concerts cancelled, including my Carnegie Hall début, I was limited to composition and solo practice. Music became my only form of prayer and I wanted to discover new inspirational sounds in New York City.
Unsafe (At Any Speed)
Aligning with NMG's 2021 theme of money, “Unsafe At Any Speed," a study in kinetic energy, tackles the greed of the auto industry. Composer Roshanne Etezady uses Ralph Nader’s 1965 non-fiction book accusing car manufacturers of being unwilling to spend money on safety features as her inspiration. The music’s “motor” is constantly running with 16th notes, brake drum, police whistle, and sounds reminiscent of traffic and honking horns.
