RE: You

Flute, Double Bass, Percussion – 20 minutes

Picture 7

RE: You is the third and final set of instrumental pieces based on lines excerpted from a collection of emails accidentally received by my friend Jeffrey K. Miller. As with the other two sets–Why are you not answering? and Is it Auburn?–RE: You, takes its starting point from the strange emotional worlds implied by the extracted lines. For RE: You the first email, Better find those little blue pills if you plan on giving her more than lip service, is a letter of advice sent to Jeffrey from an unknown friend. The second email, Halfway?, is in fact the entire email. It refers to a meeting point halfway between Jeffrey and the woman’s home. As far as I know, the meeting never took place. The third email, I am hidden my dear for you!!!, perhaps explains the failed meeting, but we cannot be certain.

RE: You was commissioned by Concert Black and recorded at Firehouse 12 Studios with Greg DiCrosta, engineer.
