I wrote this one back in December of 2015, and thought I'd revise it a bit and make the video even creepier. Remember that Santa is ALWAYS watching.

Sheet music for this arrangement is free today, November 30th: https://pianopronto.com/composers-community/stacy-fahrion/stacy-fahrion-silent-night/ I intended to write an off-kilter version of Silent Night, but the piece didn’t want to be creepy or clever, so I tried to write the most sincerely beautiful version of Silent Night I could. It has a few minor reharmonizations and crunchy dissonances. It's in C Major. I don't know who I am any more. I hope it brings you a moment of peace and comfort during difficult times.

A piece in 5/4 that uses different versions of only two chords, F and GbMaj7/Bb. It also has 2 different 3-note isomelodies over the repeating 5-note accompaniment pattern that eventually combine into an 8-note isomelody. The title is a phrase from The Listing Attic, by Edward Gorey.

I was recently interviewed for Colorado Public Radio's arts obsessions series since I'm just a little bit obsessed with nursery rhymes. :) Here's the online part. The interview will air on the radio soon!

A whimsically macabre arrangement of a song by Fred Rogers that
makes it sound ever so slightly less reassuring.

Bernstein wrote many pieces as tributes to his close friends and family,
and called them Anniversaries. This one was dedicated to his friend,
composer Lukas Foss.
composer Lukas Foss.
"It is obvious that anything a scientist discovers or invents is based on previous discoveries and inventions. The same applies to the arts. Invention does not fall upon a blank mind. Any creator owes a debt to past creation. The artist falls passionately in love with art that already exists. This is the first step." ~Lukas Foss

based on this poem by Emily Dickinson:
I felt a Funeral, in my Brain,
And Mourners to and fro
Kept treading–treading–till it seemed
That Sense was breaking through–
And when they all were seated,
A Service, like a Drum–
Kept beating–beating–till I thought
My Mind was going numb–
And then I heard them lift a Box
And creak across my Soul
With those same Boots of Lead, again,
Then Space–began to toll,
As all the Heavens were a Bell,
And Being, but an Ear,
And I, and Silence, some strange Race
Wrecked, solitary, here–
And then a Plank in Reason, broke,
And I dropped down, and down–
And hit a World, at every plunge,
And Finished knowing–then–
