Steve Siegel will perform my Between Islands at Western State Colorado University on November 3 at 2pm. During the performance, students from the Art Department will create a collaborative painting to the music.
Between Islands – for trumpet and electronic score is an expression of the experience of separation from loved ones long gone. According to Griffin, “The experience of losing a truly loved person is profoundly sad at the beginning and for a long time. But the quality of that loss gradually transforms. It becomes part of who we are. And with that realization comes a sense of serenity because the people we loved and lost are clearly residing within us.”
