I wrote this song in response to the Katrina disaster. So much sorrow had built up inside of me, I had to get it out.

It is a short, a capella piece that uses a chorus (me singing in harmony) for the musical bed. I used the chorus to loosely imitate "wind" as a backdrop for the primary vocal performance. The dissonance is there on purpose, to give it a moaning, sorrowful feel.

You have a very soulfull voice. And if I may say, (forgive me) a very Androgenic tone to it. It's very pretty, the backround vocals seem to collide with the voice at times but that really adds to the uniqueness to the song. It's pretty. Yet stark and different. The lyrics are deep too. Very good job!!

I really think you should post your wonderful analysis of your song, Joanna. I read it after I listened to your song and I am amazed by both. This is eerie and haunting and emotional and a more fitting tribute to the horrors of Katrina I cannot imagine.
