Mizu

Gabe Harter

"This piece began with my playing a C6/9 chord and feeling a very interesting sense of relaxation. The opening tones of the piece, as I wrote them, brought me back to somewhere in my childhood, safe and comfortable. The piece continues to intensify with more dissonant chord tones and faster pacing until it reaches a climax towards the end. From which, it returns back to comfortability and nostalgia. I chose to write for solo piano because I like the way it sounds, and it was the instrument I originally wrote the piece on. The title Mizu means water in Japanese.
