‘Always There’

By Grant Allen

UGA Undergraduate Student

"The sustained note at the beginning and end of the piece is sustained throughout the whole duration of the work, remaining constant as the notes around it enter and change. The new notes create "good" and "bad" chords as they move around before eventually fading to reveal the original note. I found it to be symbolic of resilience in that however drowned out the note may be, it is always there, singing the same tune."
