for flute, viola, and piano.

I wrote You Would Too not long after the deaths of my great grandfather and his daughter, which happened within days of each other. I would not say the piece is about them, but it comes as a reaction to the experience of losing them. The title quotes a Notorious B.I.G. lyric in which he says “You would too if you knew what this game will do to you.” I think the message of that passage is that although some decisions may seem questionable to other people, they might make similar choices if they went through the same experiences. My harmonic and melodic choices make this one of the less dissonant works in my catalog, as I wrote it during a time in which I needed pleasantness from my art.
