David Pierce has a novelist’s bearing when he composes. You know how the master’s of fiction are at their best when they adhere to that rubric of “show, don’t tell?” Well, Pierce makes music that illustrates and expresses, sounds that sway the heart and switch on the imagination. It’s a rare treat to encounter a composer, like David, who challenges musicians while delighting an audience!

The Old Clock

These next few songs are from a Halloween musical I write every year called “Cirque du Horror.” Family friendly, and a mix of humor and the macabre, Cirque takes to the stage every October to transport its audiences to a magical time of ghosts, goblins, fairies and ghouls…where nothing is ever as it seems. Enjoy this piece, if you would, of an old clock possessed by some dark spirit that wakes every Halloween night….More info about Cirque can be found on its webpage :
