A movement from Memories of the Hudson for guitar and cello. Composed by: Paul Sayed Guitar: David Solis Olson Cello: Alan Black Note: This is not an arrangement of any Gal Costa performance but rather a musical realization of the emotions and feelings that I get whenever I hear Gal Costa's voice, especially when she sings Jobim. Also the title comes from Luisa Valenzuela's short story "I'm Your Horse in the Night," which is a beautiful story about a doomed summer love.
The first in a series of works entitled Silent Protest. Taking its initial inspiration from a sketch by fellow composer Kwaumane Brown, The Same Reaction to Everything, Good or Bad, plays on sparseness, context, and an audience's expectations. While following a conventional dramatic contour for Western Art music (an idea is introduced in the opening section followed by a departure and return in the concluding section), The Same Reaction to Everything, Good or Bad begins by singling out a certain pitch out of rhythmic, melodic, and harmonic context. Some may find enjoyment in the meditative experience of listening to a certain sound's natural decay while others may find it annoying, irritating, and lacking in any artistic merit. Nevertheless, the highlighted pitch eventually falls into a context that should reinforce, reorient, or confuse a listener's initial impression of the protest.

Just uploading this to share with friends, family, and you. I performed this during the beginning of my conducting studies. Since then, I have developed my skills to be a little better and it's an ever growing process. I hope you can enjoy it nonetheless. Critiques are welcome but honestly, I don't check my youtube account very often and keep in mind that I am still studying the art of conducting.
Composed by: Paul Sayed Performed at Tyler-Tallman Hall in Davidson College by: Jacque Culpupper - Soprano Ryan Cockman - Violin Alan Black - Cello Cynthia Lawing - Piano text by: Henry David Thoreau What's the railroad to me? I never go to see Where it ends. It fills a few hollows, And makes banks for the swallows, It sets the sand a-blowing, And the blackberries a-growing,
