“Extant” emerges after a period of struggling with health issues left neo-classical composer Meg Blumberg unable to play the piano. During moments of respite Blumberg poured herself into the songs that would make up the EP Extant. The result on the composition “Extant” are melodies that ride in the chasm between synonymous emotions. A sense of stillness rides atop a composition informed by sadness but also a movement towards hope that shows up in the tiniest accents and phrases. Fantastic work.
