Backlash: a suddenly violent reaction moving in backward motion


I wanted to create a piece about reaction- about how some actions have consequences. In Backlash, I composed a melody, both whimsical and wild, with brash harmonies to create an environment of chaotic adventure. The piece uses combinations of instruments to display a wide variety of explosive emotions through colors. From start to finish, Backlash consumes chaotic energy that later resolves into an energetic finale.
