Presenting a music video for my 2016 work for flute/piccolo, Bb clarinet, violin, cello, and piano.
Using 50 tarot cards to create the framework, there is both an element of chance (in that the process of drawing the cards and their placement in the 5 separate tarot spreads, is all random) and an element of “foreordained knowledge” (or pre-compositional structure). “The Oracle” has thus emerged as a multi-faceted, deeply layered, story-driven reflection of the human condition.
This video comprises the mythical elements and characters found in the tarot cards that make up this piece. What story do you see unfolding?
