This piece was inspired by the immigration saga that began to unfold a few weeks ago. Young children being separated from their parents with little hope of reunification…
Working on this song helped me grapple with deepening concern about the devolution of our culture.
I wasn’t sure what to name the piece, but landed on American Gravity, since the force of gravity causes things to fall, and it also denotes great solemnity and seriousness. I think both meanings apply here!
