A three-piece song cycle for mezzo soprano, alto saxophone, and audience. Silver Songs (Lunch Hour, Jam, Night) are stories of finding the silver lining during frustrating times. The music mimics this theme with growing tension as the protagonist becomes more and more distraught. Release and relief occur when she finds something positive to focus on. Dissonance becomes consonant, accented becomes smooth, speech-like becomes song, cacophony becomes melody, syllabic text setting becomes melismatic, and disjunct lines become lyrical.
