For the Loneliness You Foster – Solo Flute

Chinese Photographer
I was introduced to music through a miniature Fender Stratocaster that my parents bought me as a child. In high school, after I learned the minor pentatonc scale, I began spending hours soloing and playing the blues. Practicing guitar alone in my room became an opportunity to escape from reality and an outlet to express my teenage angst. The title of this work is taken from the Fionn Regan song “Put a Penny in the Slot” where the narrator discusses the confusion and loneliness associated with leaving home at 17 to become a musician.
