|Prince Street Chaconne (2015)|
A disused house on Seattle's SW Prince Street has been put up for sale on Zillow. I am quite fond of using Zillow to look at homes I cannot afford (and at the moment of writing, and for the foreseeable future, that includes all of them) and this particular home immediately felt like a place I wished I could make my own. This chaconne, unlike the Villa Mors one, was completed relatively quickly. The lengths of the sections are dictated by the house's Zillow ID (and I decided against converting a single zero into a meaningful musical idea of a zero, so it was simply skipped). No fixed bass patterns – instead, a necklace of notes repeats through each variation.

It might be of interest that SW Prince Street turns up in three different locations on my maps, broken up by rather large areas of completely different streets. The house in question doesn't seem to be visible from any satellite or aerial pictures, being completely obscured by trees. These things have found their way into the music, even though I have been quite unaware of them.
