︎︎︎Note

‘God’s Children’ is a meditation on the social pressures of religious zeal, a song-without-words taken from an unfinished monodrama about a scientologist who died while under observation by ‘the church.’ I wanted the work to evoke a sense of true community, cleared of rank and status: a basic state of being, connecting with our core humanity.
