Speaking… again is a radiophonic composition based on interviews with Don, a long-time friend of the composer. Don experienced a profound, unexpected, life-changing challenge in his early 50’s. While others might have given up, Don’s outlook, determination, and refusal to allow setbacks to dictate his life, set an example for how we should all approach living. Further, Don teaches us not to take even the simplest things for granted.

Speaking… again was realized in 2003 at the composer’s studio in Bowling Green (Ohio, USA) and premiered on January 19, 2004 at the Péniche Adélaïde (Paris, France) for the Radiophonic art prizewinners competition concert organized by La Muse en circuit. The piece was commissioned by La Muse en circuit. Recordings of Don were made at the Electroacoustic Music Studios of the University of Birmingham (UK), engineered by Joseph Anderson.
