“Madrigal” Coming Together…

I feel like my new work, “Madrigal, for Orchestra,” is finally coming along nicely, headed in a clearer direction now. I’m so excited about it! Enjoy this brief sneak peek of the opening 5:30 minutes…. Hope to be officially finished with it within the next few weeks; I can’t wait to see where it goes from here! :)

“Music for The Book of I” – Now Available!

Now on CD Baby, iTunes, and very soon at other online retailers, Book of I OST coverartyou can purchase your own copy of my OST for Jorge Armenteros’ novel, The Book of I!

…the soundtrack composed by Sarah Wallin Huff stands out as both a powerful album, taking its listener on an emotional journey of beauty, despair, and hope, as well as a fascinating study of the composer’s visceral and intellectual connection to the source material…the album is a stunning collection of gorgeous, orchestral selections comprised mostly of string instruments that are, at times, vividly haunting but always entirely engrossing. (Barbra Dillon)

 

“The Book of I” is Available; Album Available Soon!

Out today is Jorge Armenteros‘ striking novel, “The Book of I,” as well as artwork by Liselott Johnsson. Unfortunately, there was a slight delay in the release of my accompanying OST, but the album will be available shortly, I promise – within the coming week. So keep your eyes and ears out for it!

In the meantime, go read this fantastic review for the album and the encompassing collaboration by Barbra Dillon over at Fanboy Comics. And, you can go listen to teaser clips at my Book of I OST page!

-excerpt from Fanboy Comics…

…the soundtrack composed by Sarah Wallin Huff stands out as both a powerful album, taking its listener on an emotional journey of beauty, despair, and hope, as well as a fascinating study of the composer’s visceral and intellectual connection to the source material.  Featuring the stellar work of musicians Darrell Peries, Caleb Barnes, Cathy Alonzo, Jenna Ford, Lainey Elizabeth White, Brett Bird, Jonatas Mostacato, Ayla Draper, and [Wallin] Huff herself, the album is a stunning collection of gorgeous, orchestral selections comprised mostly of string instruments that are, at times, vividly haunting but always entirely engrossing.  [Wallin] Huff, who previously released her own album, Soul of the Machine, earlier this year, clearly has a passion and a gift for sharing every ounce of her mind, body, and soul with the listener, as if providing a warm invitation for the listener to share the same in response.

Bernstein

“The composer comes first. In the beginning was the Note, and the Note was with God; and whosoever can reach for that Note, reach high, and bring it back to us on earth, to our earthly ears – he is a composer, and to the extent of his reach, partakes of the divine.” -Leonard ‪#‎Bernstein‬ (“Varèse, Koussevitzky, and New Music” speech delivered May 23, 1963 at The Plaza Hotel for an International Music Fund event paying homage to Edgard Varèse)

“Adoré” Performed at CFAMC Convention

Yesterday, my work for string orchestra, “Adoré” was performed beautifully by the Biola Symphony Orchestra as part of the CFAMC National Convention.

It made me so happy to hear how much the performers (and audience, too) loved it. What can I say? I love writing enjoyable music for strings! :)
