Songs for Silent Earth is a suite for Piano Trio, commissioned for The Muses Trio for performance in Byron Bay on International Women's Day, 2018.
The piece was commissioned as a work that could celebrate the natural beauty of the Byron Bay area, on Australia's east coast, alongside a celebration of the voices of women. This suite reflects upon three female figures and interprets their voices musically in a series of "songs for the hours," musical pieces intended for the passage of the day. The works are also connected to the Muses Trio project "Seen but not Her," considering influential women from history.
