Program Notes:

Like a Giant Refreshed: written for Dr. Megan Arns, Dr. Julia Gaines, and the University of Missouri Percussion Ensemble and was premiered at the Missouri Music Educators Convention January 27th, 2017. 

The piece loosely depicts the approaching footsteps of a waking giant and his or her eventual exit into a fog. Some of the phrases/ideas appeared in earlier unpublished works/indoor drumline shows, but finally came together as complete idea here.
