I've been sitting with this piece for over a year now and really contemplated never sharing it publicly. This is due in part to going through periods of not really liking it, but also because of how personal it is. Without going into too much detail, I wrote it around the time when my grandfather died and only performed it once (during my grad recital at MacEwan University). I wrote it in two parts, both of which can be explained by the title. The first is whenever "never" happens, expressing how it feels to have something seemingly impossible happen, or perhaps something that you never expected. The second part is "whenever" never happens, its about waiting for something to come your way but knowing that it never will. I hope you get something out of this, it feels good to put this one out into the world so that I never have to play it again.
