NEON NIGHTS is a captivating journey through the vibrant and exhilarating world of nighttime revelry. I wanted to immerse the listener in a sonic landscape pulsating with Afro-Latin rhythms and harmonies, evoking the bustling energy of urban nightlife.

As the piece progresses, it weaves its way through a tapestry of diverse rhythms and scenarios, much like the ever-changing facets of a bustling nightlife. The music takes the listener on a journey through a spectrum of emotions and atmospheres, vividly illustrating the various elements of a vibrant urban evening. At one moment,the music builds a lush, kaleidoscopic glow of a light show, as the ensemble's harmonies shimmer and sparkle, casting a mesmerizing spell. In contrast, the music also transports us to the heart of a heat-filled dancefloor, where infectious rhythms and spirited melodies inspire movement and celebration. NEON NIGHTS paints a vivid picture of neon signs and dazzling visual displays that transform the cityscape into a luminous wonderland.
