Notes: Rebecca writes: “Honeylocust came together during a few instances of composing over several months.  It started when I was in a practice room in high school.  The following autumn, I took a tree identification class in college, learned about honeylocust trees, and worked on the tune during a snow day.  I finished it during my commute to a summer internship during which I walked by honeylocust trees every day.  There are so many fun aspects about honeylocust trees: their leaves turn yellow in the fall, their bark has long plates, they make large pods- and, my favorite thing: they often have giant spikes, a trait left over from when they had to defend themselves from large mammals eons ago.”
