The Man Who Dreamt in Rubato

For four timpanists and pipe organ (2012)

The dreams we imagine during the waking hours are alternately quaint, inspiring, ambitious and sometimes silly. I rely on my daydreams to provide a blueprint of possibilities, and yet, time spent with my head elsewhere is time I might have spent living more firmly in reality.  The Man Who Dreams in Rubato is a portrait of my experience with the pros and cons of daydreams.
