This piece, The Meld, consists of five movements, each tailored to specific aspects of the new Ames Library. Through this short journey of music, one can experience what the library embodies itself, a marriage of art and technology. Emotions arise from all different aspects of each movement, may it be mystery of this new building to the dignity and class of the "Great Room" on the fifth floor holding the stained glass windows from Oxford.
From these five short movements, the Ames Library is introduced, stated, and dignified by a piece of music. It is the realization of Ames that gave me inspiration to create this piece. And hopefully by this piece, I can inspire others to realize the full potential this library has to make the Wesleyan dream of Scientia et Sapientia a reality among all active learners.
