HA noteGabrielle Cerberville wrote the following composition for HA, “inspired by all our collective experiences of coming out from under the veil of illusion that homeschooling so often can create.” The Ligeia String Quartet graciously agreed to record it.

About Gabrielle: Gabrielle Cerberville (b. 1991) is an American composer, artist, and musician from Pennsylvania and New York. She holds a Bachelor of Music from Butler University in composition, and has studied with Dr. Frank Felice and Dr. Michael Schelle. Gabrielle is inspired by the sensual nature of the world around her, and seeks to create art that is both practical and innovative, with an edge of wit and natural sarcasm. Many of her works comment on absurdity, complexity, and the poignancy of nature and culture, as well as delving into the deeper questions of life, the universe, and everything. Gabrielle currently lives and works in Indianapolis with her husband Jordan and their two cats, Zaphod and Bartók.

Program notes by Gabrielle: I wrote this piece after obsessing over HA blog posts for months. Hearing so many people saying the same thing inspired me: We once were blind, and now we see. We don’t all see the same thing, but at least now we’re looking out of our own eyes.
