Scott Barkan ('16) releases new album “Good at Goodbye”

MFA in Music Composition alumnus Scott Barkan has released his latest album "Good at Goodbye." 

BarkanThis is Scott's third album as a solo artist. It features original compositions that were primarily composed and recorded during his time at VCFA, and that were heavily influenced by collaboration with  faculty mentors John Mallia, Michael Early, and Don DiNicola, as well as feedback from the student community.

"Good at Goodbye" is an intensely personal self examination coinciding with the end of a 10 year relationship and many other seismic life changes. Musically, it explores the strange terrain that exists between indie rock, jazz, and folk music, freely moving from moments of dissonant improvisation, pop hooks, deep grooves and ethereal, layered textures, the synthesis of which was a primary focus of his work at VCFA. 

You can purchase it on a pay-what-you-want basis on Bandcamp.
