Notes from the score: Nocturnes for Solo Percussion is a collection of concert works for advanced performers.
Written throughout the quarantine phase of Covid-19, these solos were both a daily distraction; and a voice for my fears, frustrations, and anxieties at that time. Some of the solos are simple in instrumentation, while others combine colors that are less prominent in percussion literature. All of the solos require a good deal of virtuosity and emotional commitment from the performer.
