Radio EP is a year-long project consisting of three major parts: narrative, original music, and audio effects. The story is up to interpretation, following an unnamed protagonist as they switch through numerous channels on an old and vintage radio. As time passes, it becomes clear that disaster is near, especially with the increasing references to a nearby hurricane. As the connection becomes unstable, the radio stills, ending the EP. The music is made up of three original pieces: “Tango for Strings and Keys,” “Shifting Tides,” and “An Ordinary Radio Program.” “Tango for Strings and Keys” is a piano quintet that exemplifies an individualized touch on the standard tango style. “Shifting Tides” is an electronic piece that showcases the different levels in the ocean. Lastly, “An Ordinary Radio Program” is a solo piano piece that combines two juxtaposed sections, a slow yet unnerving A section and energetic B section. This piece, combined with the increased distortion, results in a bittersweet ending.
