A piece written under the guidance of David Schiff for his composition course.
Recorded May 9, 2014 in the Performing Arts Building at Reed College.
The program notes read:
The music is lush and the lyrics are dark, melodramatic, and trashy, playing on gender and youth culture. Lad Musician tells the story of a bitter, cynical composer who feels ignored by his many passing infatuations and is in no way about myself at all.
