Program notes​

My first real live concert experience was an overcrowded RUSH concert with my dad was I was very young. I vividly remember Neal Peart's showy and virtuosic solos that included a rotating drum set, triggering midi pads, and accompanying video (that he also triggered). When I started to think of this piece the new broke of Peart's death and so I found myself wanting to engage with that memory. Loosely titled after one of Peart's famous solos "der trommler."
