Winged

Erik Wallace

“Winged” was written for a dance my mom choreographed. The dance was originally supposed to a part of a trilogy concerning a group of Japanese American women dealing with the internment camps during WWII. This song accompanied the first section and was mainly about establishing characters and the relationships between them. Unfortunately, the rest of the trilogy never got completed and I dropped out of the music department at Western. It was created on my computer using Cubase 5 and an orchestral sample library. I am a WCC and WWU alumni, a drummer, a composer, and an audio engineer. My business, Shibusa Sound, does digital recording, live sound, music production, and acoustic treatment. I also work at the WCC library.
