Moonstruck was composed as a response to Norman Lindsay's etching/aquatint of the same name, for a perfomance by the New England Regional Art Museum "Out of the Frame" that presented 16 different artworks on stage. It aims to be a totally absurdist love duet between Pierrot and Columbine and contains about 35 different rhymes for moon. The absurdity of the text contrasts with a fairly simply folky setting.
Instrumentation: Male voice, female voice, guitar.
Duration: 2 min.
Commission note: Composed for performance "Out of the Frame" by the New England Regional Art Museum
- Inspired by: Visual arts works
