The Pillowman (2012)

For solo piano.

This work was written in my final year of university. It explored the concept of music communicated as a form of non-verbal language. The music was inspired by a scene from the play ‘The Pillowman’ by Martin McDonagh, where it was heard alongside a video of the text. Presented in a live setting experiment, the audience heard the music firstly without the visual cues of the text and were asked to write down moods or responses they felt upon hearing the music. They then were asked to write their responses after seeing the music in combination with the text.
