all ways: a song for the millennium

All Ways was commissioned by Frederick and Alexandra Peters for a project called Songbook for a New Century,¬†an evening of songs about the millennium. I chose this text from Stephen King’s novel It, because I felt I didn’t know anything about the new century.

All Ways is November 27th in my ongoing project A Book of Days. You can hear my live performance of the piece there.

And you are warmly invited to support this very low-key way of publishing:
