Composition 2022.03 (Memento Mori) consists of a short fading tone at E♭3 - a short sinewave-based tone that rises slowly rises in pitch - and continually repeating tonal dyads made from the pitches C2 - D2 - D#2 from the Electric Piano - with the dyads alternating between consonance and dissonance. The work was composed as a dirge - to remind one of one’s own mortality - and the sound of the electric piano has the quality of a funeral bell.

The Latin phrase memento mori literally means "Remember that you must die." The phrase has its origins in ancient Rome - where it is believed that slaves accompanying generals on victory parades whispered the words as a reminder of their commander’s mortality - and to prevent them from being consumed by hubris. The concept has become a familiar trope in the arts from the medieval period to the present.
