Not What I Expected — A Commission Piece

A friend is writing a book. Her first. She had the novel (ha ha ha) idea of creating a soundtrack for the book much the way films do. Each chapter has a playlist that she’s listening to as she writes, and which I believe she intends to include with the published work as suggested listening.

She asked me to compose a specific piece to accompany a specific chapter. It has been an interesting challenge to work on something driven by emotions and motivations which are not drawn directly from my own experiences.
