la balançoire
For Solo Piano
Written By Tim P Manger



'La Balançoire' is written to invoke the idea of a young child poised wistfully on an old rope-swing (attached to an aged tree); free, untroubled, and peaceful.

The entire piece (apart from the faster middle-section in 4/8) is scored in 6/8, enabling the crotchet-quaver repetitive to invoke a slightly swung sensation. As various emotions well in the child, so-too the piece weaves its way from the tree-branch-high catapults, to the slower toe-dragging meanderings of the child, nostalgically resting against the ropes of the old still-swing.

'La Balançoire' comes to a conclusion with a progression that leaves the peace complete, yet the story unfinished.
