It is easy to overlook things that seem insignificant in life and forget the need to stop and pay attention to details. We can miss the joy and importance of small things.
In this work I developed the sample of a cricket to symbolise the solitary voice of one overlooked by society. By drawing the audience’s attention to this sound, I have attempted to portray how, even though it has a small role, there is something charming and captivating about the cricket’s call and the great lessons that can be learnt from it.
I have explored this idea in three movements: a moderately slow melodic movement, a rhythmic second movement and a slower harmonic final movement.
