Ruminations - Pam's new album of electroacoustic music
Get Ruminations on Bandcamp today!
Orchestral but slightly warped
Most of the tracks have an orchestral sound, slightly warped to evoke mysterious and resonant soundscapes. I've also resurrected a track from the 1980s made on the Kurzweil 250. A vintage synth now!
Contemplative and intriguing, calm but with some ruffles. Several tracks are musical miniatures, including a 30-second whirling dance. For the final track, you can relax into a hypnotic meditation, which occasionally sounds like a chill Bolero.
Social action too
From June 28 through July 6, I will donate 50% of Bandcamp earnings to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund. On July 3, the Bandcamp sale waiving fees it charges artists means that we'll be able to donate even more. Buy on July 3, if you can, or any other day!
In April and May, I donated $50 to the New Music Solidarity Fund at New Music USA. Thank you for helping me help our fellow artists whose livelihoods have disappeared when there are no concerts.

Shepherds & Angels sets American folk songs for Christmas, but Angel Music is soulful & happy music for any recital. S&A interludes become the 3 movements, mixing modal & chromatic melodies, snappy rhythms, dense harmonies.

Great Meadow Ramblings
Long overdue completion of music for solo violin, which triggered the expansion of a related string trio. The trio came out of the solo, but``` diverged and became more substantial. Now it may need another movement.
