Abstract/Artist Statement

This song cycle had its genesis in a post-concert gathering during which it came about that Wednesday was henceforth to be a day for the sharing of love. Various activities ensued on each consecutive Wednesday, among myself, my friends, and anyone who happened to be in the right place at the right time to share in Wednesday Love. Part way through the spring semester, I decided to begin writing a short love song each Wednesday in honor of Wednesday Love. The songs describe and discuss what Wednesday Love is about and the activities and events that occur around it. Each song is composed on a Wednesday in an extremely short amount of time, pushing my capabilities as a composer and developing my process in maintaining a coherent short form and overarching form.
