“Songs of Love and Loss” is a piece for a modular string ensemble, electronic music and vocals, composed by Emmanuel Witzthum. It was written to express the journey following romantic separation and the process leading to the rebuilding of the relationship. The piece follows the seasons of the year as a representation of the breakup, the sorrow of solitude, and the gradual rekindling of love, ending on a note of hope tinged by previous sorrows. The piece layers string harmonies, ambient electronics, and vocal harmonies together.
