Little Sonata
Short Song Description:
This little sonata for piano was written in May 2002 to reflect on the spirit of the emerging Spring season that year. It's syntax and repetitions celebrate both the rhythm of seasons and the newness of everything that was, before, old.
Long Song Description:
Five months following the death of my father, I am wondering about "what next" questions for my own life and the lives of those I love. This little song attempts to capture the mood of these questions without ever completing any answers. However, the use of repetition and variation seems to incant a song of hope that "what was, will always be again - forever." The song suggests that there is simply no final answer to any of our questions - deliberately teasing us to "fill in the blanks" on our own - with a few cues from what we already have heard, ie what we already know in our souls. Little Sonata was written by Bruce Mills in 2002 and produced in 2011.
