Neurogenesis (Musical Composition)

Christopher Traner

eXpressions™ Award: Honorable Mention

My musical composition represents an aspect of the disease of epilepsy, which I researched this summer in my internship. The slow, flowing movement represents the ease of how our brain sends and receives chemical and electrical signals. In contrast, the light, sharp, and fast movement, represents the trauma that the brain undergoes when experiencing a seizure.
