Composer: Anthony Mark LaMort
Sample Set: MDA Mt. Carmel E.M. Skinner with Synthesizer and "found audio"
Software: Hauptwerk IV
Genre: Modern
From the Waterways series:

The most self-referential of these pieces. Obviously intentionally lugubrious, from the title and the immediate “gentle assault” of open fifths. If we live long enough and fully enough, we will all have something that chills us more than any cold or damp ever could. For me, I must embrace this thing without letting it over come me.

Within this piece, in the midst of (to me) agonized open intervals and obviously wailing synthetic tones, I employ my childhood favorite “non-standard scale” used and overused in my fledgling compositions, and a series of somewhat disjunctive chords at the conclusion – for me indicative of my (I pray) resolve to not be mastered by the “chill” I most nonetheless accept as a part of my life and being.
