Program Note

This song cycle glimpses love through different windowpanes: joy, anger, depression, resentment, acceptance. The individual titles refer to songs by the band gUiLLeMoTs, whose lyrics have been recycled for this piece. This, however, is as far as their influence permeates. Perhaps.

Made-Up Love Songs is dedicated to Annie, who didn't wait.
