Q2 Music Premieres New Video for “The Barn”

Q2 Music premiered a beautiful new video for “The Barn,” from Sarah’s orchestral song cycle, Unremembered. Nathaniel Bellows, the cycle’s lyricist and illustrator, created the video himself from hand-drawn sketches and illustrations. Q2 writes:

Watch a new video for Sarah Kirkland Snider’s “The Barn” from her 2015 orchestral song cycle Unremembered. Set to animated stained glass-like paintings and pencil-on-parchment sketches, the music features vocalists DM Stith and Shara Nova and The Unremembered Orchestra under the baton of Edwin Outwater.

Unremembered is a song cycle in 13 parts for chamber orchestra, voices and electronics. The lyrics and video are by Nathaniel Bellows, who writes the following of the piece: “The Barn” is about an encounter with two ghosts—a young girl, bashful and demure, on the steps of the hayloft; and a young man, immersed in flames, walking across the pasture grasses. Like all the poems in Unremembered, “The Barn” explores what pulses and thrives—invisible, mysterious, and pervasive—within the realms of memory and childhood.” ”
