Words Unspoken (喜怒哀楽) / by Sarah Kakusho

Summer 2013 -- We live in an age where encouragement comes at a price, so people can't help but feel insignificant even in their own lives. And to blanket the negativity, a wall is built, a shield is brought out to defend what little humanity lies within our lives.  People become detached, disconnected, numb.  Locked inside themselves.  All the while words too many mask what's unknowingly felt on the inside.  

喜怒哀楽: To feel happiness, to feel anger, to feel sorrow, to feel comfort.  That which makes us human.   A couple of friends of mine challenged me to write four pieces that would express that which makes us human.  These pieces are that result. Summer 2013 Music Project.
