Abstract/Artist Statement

A Normal life is a piece in 4 movements that touches on each section of a person's life. The person portrayed in this piece separated their life into 4 sections. Birth/Childhood, Adolescence, Adulthood, and Old age. The Childhood section is light bouncy and energetic representing the innocence and high energy of a child. The Adolescence movement represents a dramatic teenage time in this person's life. While going through these years the person felt it was the most dramatic time in their life and the music reflects that. The Adulthood movement is very repetitive and reflects the happy tone of this person's adulthood. The repetitive nature of this movement represents the repetitive nature of adulthood. The final movement is a remembrance of their life. Looking back on all 4 stages of their life and in the end listening to them all meld together: A Normal Life.
