Enjoy the digital demo of “Solitude’s Hypocrisy” for solo violin and classical guitar!
Woke up this morning to a sudden burst of inspiration for another of my themes for THE BOOK OF I! “Solitude’s Hypocrisy” for solo violin and classical guitar… It’s utterly captivating to work on– maybe I’ll complete it by the end of today!
“The ever-shifting world throws me into a lonely corner when I need someone. And when I crave solitude, my skull lets everybody into my mind.” –Teaston (written by Jorge Armenteros)
Woohoo!! We’re beginning talks to hammer out specific details on the recording and production side of my soundtrack for THE BOOK OF I project; it’s looking to be a blast of an opportunity!… Which means I have a “drop dead” deadline now to complete the writing of everything…. A solid two more months to finish composing approx 30-45 minutes more of music…no prob!….
Enjoy this video from the live performance of my work, “Sweet Camila,” from The Book of I Musical Response soundtrack, to be released with the novel and accompanying artwork later this year!
Sunday, February 23rd, at 12pm sharp, I will be joined by the fabulous talents of Irene Shiao on violin, Cecille Asuncion on viola, and David Mason on cello in the debut live performance of my original string quartet from “The Book of I” soundtrack, Sweet Camila. We’ll be performing in Thayer Hall, at the Colburn School of the Arts in Los Angeles. Further information can be found here.
Later next month, the McKinley String Quartet is expected to record this work for the upcoming album. Stay tuned… You’ll be able to purchase the novel by Jorge Armenteros — and its accompanying artwork by Liselott Johnsson with my original soundtrack — later this year!
The collaborative album “ALLUSIONS,” on which my string quartet Anima Mechanicae is a feature, was just reviewed by the American Record Guild (pertinent portions from the review graciously emailed to me from PARMA).
Of my work:
Anima Mechanicae: Soul of the Machine by Sarah Wallin Huff is a solid string quartet that begins with constant forward propulsion but slowly unwinds to lighter movement with plucked accompaniment. Sweeping, connected motives become the concentration toward the conclusion. — American Record Guild, Jan/Feb 2014, pg 245
I’m so THRILLED that last night, I officially finished writing “Sweet Camila”, Camila’s character theme for “The Book of I”!!! Written for the intimacy of a string quartet, I find it absolutely charming, and befitting of her strong and carefree character.
