“Thunder” was written for the 2011 IUPUI Music and Arts Technology Graduate Recital. The theme of the recital was “The Convergence of Nature.” As the title suggests, the piece reflects the chaos and unpredictability of a summer thunderstorm. The storm starts suddenly in full force and continues to grow. Suddenly, it calms down and the sound of rain drops hitting the roof is all that remains. However, the threat of thunder remains. As quickly as the storm stopped, it starts up again. Visuals by Javier Sanchez.
