The latest album release, “Tonal Eclipse,” is now officially available on all your favorite platforms!
Included in this release are:
“Tonal Eclipse (Of the Heart)” is a groovy mashup of live samples taken from spontaneous recordings captured by Sarah while visiting family in Hawaii, as well as a rehash of the historic train sounds in Pierre Schaeffer’s seminal “Railway Etude” from 1948.
The full soundtrack from the dark-humor film short, “I Spy a Foodie” — written and directed by Thresa Richardson — is included in this release! * Nominated for the 2020 Roger Taylor Award for Short Film Score *
“Isolation Loop” is an original creation made with loops broken down from H.I.F. Biber’s Passacaglia for solo violin from his Rosary Sonatas of 1676. The viola and violins blend with a driving soundscape of synthesis and drums to create a haunting texture at home in any era.
Inspired by the pandemic quarantine of 2020, this improvised work is an expression of relentless hope unleashed upon the world. On a day of feeling “cooped up” I was simply inspired to create this electronic backdrop of voices and texture, and the next day I pulled out my fiddle and enjoyed freely jamming around to this track.
Hear my newest, unique single, “Chant de Grenouille sur la Lune,” now by joining the Backstage Supporter crew!
“Frog Song to the Moon” celebrates the simple beauty of nature, with entirely improvised sounds of the handpan, native trail flute, and violin, set to the background of a chorus of frog-song captured in Valencia, CA on a peaceful evening.
My Dark Glass Sinfonia for symphony orchestra is the second track on this amazing album, coming out soon from Navona Records. And you can pre-order it now! 🙂
…Next comes Dark Glass Sinfonia by Sarah Wallin Huff, in which crumpled dissonances flower into exuberant tonality, capitalizing on the full dynamic range of the orchestra… In PRISMA VOL. 3, seven masters of this challenging artform rethink what a symphony orchestra is capable of, and in so doing, present their audience with a unique and gratifying musical experience.
If you’ve enjoyed “The Raven” from my recent suite for viola and piano, Nevermore, then you might be pleased to know I’ve just finished the second movement, “Annabel Lee.”
I think this poem by Edgar Allen Poe might be one of my favorite literary works… 🤔🥰 I tried to keep the sense of innocence and deep sorrow in this musical rendition. There is a third and final movement–“Tell-Tale Heart”–planned for the future, too; so keep an eye out for that. 😉
In the meantime, enjoy the simple demo of “Annabel Lee” below…
