Carousel : for harp and string orchestra
by Phillip Wilcher (2013)
Library shelf no. 784.72795/WIL 1 [Not for loan]
Carousel was inspired by the beautiful photographic image
"Carousel Horse" by Kamau Omowale.
When I first saw the image at deviantART, I felt a very real urge to bring it to life through music. Kamau graciously granted me permission to do so and we were hoping to embark upon other such projects together. Sadly, the dream of a professional partnership marrying my music to his imagery was not to be realised. Kamau passed away on 15 May 2013.
Instrumentation: Harp, string orchestra.
Duration: 4 min.
Dedication note: For Kamau Omowale
- Inspired by: Visual arts works
