Ghost Deer | Art Davis
This EP is an exploration into mystery. I live out in the country on a few acres of land next to a pond and a small creek. Wildlife is everywhere and is a huge inspiration to me. I frequently compose out on a twenty by forty foot screened in porch on the back of my house. The EP is a set of tone poems reflecting my impressions of this environment. The EP features three piano pieces and one piece for cello choir (performed by Clay Ruede) and piano.
Ghost Deer is my attempt to capture the wonder of an amazing pale, almost white, deer that frequents my property. Last Rain is a very minimal piano piece about that moment when rain first begins to fall on the pond. I've always thought that is such a magical moment. Quatrieme Bagatelle for cello choir and piano is a short simple piece - a bagatelle - a trifle. Night Bloom for piano is my impression of beautiful flowers that bloom only at night in the woods. Again this EP is all about mystery.
