Some Short Songs is an album of original compositions that explore the Lydian Chromatic Concept (LCC). Amanda states “I love the LCC theory because it has helped me to explain my compositions in a clear way. When writing this album I wanted it to be fun! So, you’ll hear songs about hula-hoops, running out of peanut butter, and others about self-conscious clouds.”
Some Short Songs will be available at the show and proceeds are donated to the American Civil Liberties Union.
