What Democrazy Looks Like is primarily a piano solo with singing as an accompaniment. It reflects disappointment about the state of our nation, apprehension, and a tiny sliver of hope. May we musicians, artists, and scientists work together to create a better future.
Stacy is a composer and pianist who has carefully avoided singing in public before this video. Please feel free to verify this by checking out her other works at WhimsicallyMacabre.bandcamp.com. :)
Thank you to Stoph Long, who just happens to be a scientist, for his encouragement and help with the recording process.
Thank you to NPR for providing this opportunity. It forced me out of my comfort zone.
