Season’s Change (Shahril Salleh)

Performed live during Musica Intimae: Soulful Soundscapes (2016) at Chamber, The Arts House

Written by Sandra L. Milligan, the poem paints the shift of seasons as nature changes her garments from spring to summer to autumn. Change is inevitable, yet it is a beautiful experience. Salleh’s composition reflects the languid movements of leaf and wind, and subtly maps the change of seasons through the use of chromaticism and key modulations.
