Chasing Shadows (2017) is a short (~2 minute) piece that conveys emotion and turmoil. It is my goal that listeners are able to create their own narrative to this piece. The story I was thinking of while working on this was a person struggling with problems they were facing everyday. There is a sense of urgency provided by the percussion and upper strings that help keep the piece moving, both rhythmically and harmonically. This sense of urgency relates to the struggles the main character is facing.
