Insomnia Rain (2019)

For Guitar Duo with Live Electronics

Program Notes:

          As I began conceiving a piece for two guitars and electronics, I was suffering from a bout of nights where I had immense trouble sleeping. During many of those evenings, I would hear rain falling outside. While rain can often be a relaxing way to fall asleep, this time it became a sound that I was consciously lost in, exploring the timbres and articulations of every drop that I could audibly find. This became the impetus for Insomnia Rain, a piece in which the music becomes both hypnotic and yet distracting all at the same time.
