about

Composed from November to December 2016 and debuted live in February 2017, "The Empress" is a through-composed, 45 minute, 4 movement work for an acoustic/electric chamber ensemble. Written specifically for the instrumentalists in The Forgotten Prophets (Chris Bell, Jonathan Geer, Aaron Lack, Pat Harris, Steve Schwelling), the piece was inspired by The Empress Tarot card artwork, symbolism, and meaning. The title of each movement corresponds to the large themes found on the card, and the structure of each movement and piece as a whole directly references the numerology contained within the art itself.
