MURDER is a ballad cycle by Tucker Fuller and Megan Levad, writing as 1928. Comprised of nine songs written for two sopranos and a piano. Each of the songs in MURDER draws on a traditional murder ballad theme—resignation, glee, horror, penitence—and a particular style of music. In addition to folk, blues, and country, Murder incorporates elements of hymn and pre-1930s jazz standards, as well as some of American music's most popular songs.
