In May, I posted a video playing this short composition of mine, which I wrote as an expression of grief. I said that I would send sheet music to anyone who wished to play and connect (virtually). A dozen incredible musicians created recordings that were compiled and mixed to become this new work. My daughter created this artwork for the piece.
Here are the wonderful musicians involved:
Jacqueline Cordova-Arrington - Flute Anna Doak - Bass Jeffrey Johnson - Viola Leanna Keith - Flute Jim Knodle - Trumpet Carol Levin - Harp Jon Rÿser - Saxophones, Tech Aaron Cadam Samuels - Keyboard Monica Schley - Harp Jen Simone - Violin Ben Thomas - Vibraphone, Audio Editing Michael Wheatley - Violin Gretchen Yanover - Cello
With Love, Rage, and Solidarity, Gretchen & Friends

Chopin: Prelude in E Minor, Op. 28, No. 4
Reaching out to my roots in classical music, I utilize the layering technique I have with my own neo-classical compositions to explore the rich chordal landscape of Chopin’s piano Prelude in E Minor. Recorded by Kent Harrison at Sammamish Sounds Studio, WA. Mastered by Rachel Field at Resonant Mastering, Seattle. Album cover art by Iona Duncan - Instagram: @nerdthatdraws
