Time again for another track by the most posted about composer an piano player on this blog; William Ogmundson! You can read a lot more about him here, but here’s the short intro:
The track The dove was released as a single on may the 29th of 2020.
Tell us something about the track The dove!
I wrote “The Dove” while in Palestine last spring. We saw the wall between Israel and Palestine up close, with tear gas canisters littering the ground and barbed wire everywhere. Two opposing sides, with no hope of reconciliation in the foreseeable future. One thing that struck me though, was that wildflowers were flourishing amidst the barbed wire, and birds flew freely over the wall. For a brief moment, it suddenly occurred to me that the natural world continued on, despite disagreements among humans, and that maybe there was hope for us as well. Thus, the song was conceived. The melody (representing the dove) is simple and plain, with a some somewhat dissonant chords beneath (the wall).
Thank you Will for this track!
