Music by Jessica Butler
Dreaming about 'Elvish' music, of which we read in Tolkien's books, I have had vague imagination what such music would be. Jessica Butler, a musician from America, has made my dream real.
Jessica Rae Butler (25)
is a music student in Southern California,
in the United States. Currently she is
studying Vocal Performance, although she has a
background in instrumental as well.
She has been involved in music and performance
since she was a child, and she
loves all kinds of music. It is only
recently, however, that Jessica has dared
venture into composition at any length.
You can read more about Jessica on her
she has been writing of
late. It is her opinion that Howard Shore
(composer for the Peter Jackson films) has
perfectly captured the essence of Elvish music, and the ethereal and
otherwordly feel of his music has stuck with
Jessica, and quite obviously influenced her
own compositions. She
currently has three compositions, two in Sindarin and one in Quenya,
and she hopes over time to
generate more (especially for Gwaith-i-Phethdain!). To
