Song of the Suffering
I can feel the despair and hopelessness in this, a wonderfully tragic dance between piano and cello. Thumbs, Gibbo
Quite a composition, Sean! Enjoyed the piano/cello interaction. The back and forth of phrases conveyed a lament worthy of the scale of suffering your father's poetry describes. Very good dynamics. Liked the lively piano under the cello legato around 3-4min...then that delicious change in the cello at 4:08...wonderfully crafted!
Born Sean Damon Rohde in 1968, I began my music studies at twelve. Like so many others, I learned my favorite rock songs by ear. But almost immediately I realized an intense desire to create. I was no longer interested in playing the music of others; from then on I have played only my own music.In 1986, using my name Sean Damon, I began my serious music career. In fact, I have learned music mostly by my own efforts; I have had very little formal training. Since beginning my studies, I have also developed a voracious appetite for high culture in all forms: the fine arts, history, and science.Above all, though, I hold Mother Nature most dear. In her embrace I find my classroom, my playground, and my church. From her, I have learned to appreciate the beautiful subtleties of existence. With her, I have experienced some of my greatest pleasures. By her, I find the spiritual reassurance to continue through hardship and maintain a productive life.Amid ugliness of the human world, I find paradise in my thoughts. Whatever becomes of humanity, I shall continue to do my part to promote beauty.Artists keep the sanity of humankind.
