Autumn's Return is a contemplative piece composed during the transition from autumn to winter. Resigning myself to isolation, with fragments of randomly generated material scattered across the floor, I endeavoured to create something coherent from these fragments, something which expressed my identity. The piece began to take form when I picked up my guitar and improvised on the melodic fragments. I found myself drawn to the resonance and decay of the guitar. The resultant piece allows the performer to undertake a similar emergent experience: a journey with no particular destination, but one from which growth and increased self-understanding is possible.
