William Chandler wrote Flourish No. 1: I Know You Don't Believe It during the pandemic year of 2020-21. He intends the piece to convey the opposite of languishing. It is the first in a series of "flourishes," which are prelude-like solos for classical guitar.
Chandler, the founder of Musica Canis Avem, has studied classical guitar with Larry Long and Matt Palmer. He studied composition with composers David Van Vactor and William Kenlon. Chandler is also an energy and climate scientist and entrepreneur.
Palmer and Kenlon edited the composition. Ann Sarber designed the cover art. Kate Richardson copyedited the text.
