Program Notes

Aerial Escape is a fast three-minute work that shifts through multiple different characters and rhythmic styles. The title and theme of Aerial Escape are in reference to my first compositional influences -- I wrote a large collection of works based on flight in my younger age. These pieces varied from works based on a flying phoenix, dogfights in the sky, to gliding down mountains. To represent all of these creations, the old melodies from these past compositions were used to construct the motives and themes of this brand-new work. The sense of flight is still prominent in the work, which is how the title became known as aerial, with the escape showing the urge to try and move away from these old conventions.
