Clima (2019)

Instrumentation:

solo piano

Duration: 5'

This work is written for and commissioned by pianist Lior Willinger, supported through the Presser Award, Peabody Conservatory. This commissioning project forms a collection of works by a group of composers to encourage the progress of a variety of social justice causes.

In 2018 - the unusually cool weather brought about by the monsoon surge was a rare occurrence in equatorial Singapore, and that prompted me to write something related to nature and environmental protection. CLIMA is created with the intention to raise awareness for climate change, global warming, and their potentially catastrophic ramifications.
