Art Lives On! #10 – “A Pause in the Disaster”

“A Pause in the Disaster”*

Late in August 2018, David Waldman asked Facebook friends to state their favorite musical genres. Among the genres mentioned were: funk, contemporary jazz, swing, folk, and Motown. He set about writing a musical work with elements of all 5 suggested genres. Originally, he was going to call it “Disaster”, which he assumed would be the new genre created by this musical effort. As the piece turned out better than expected, he’s called it “A Pause in the Disaster.” See what you think, and share it if you like.
