I have deep respect for Joshua Trinidad and his music, and I'm excited to share this collaboration. Isolation features non-retrogradable/palindromic rhythms in the right hand of the piano part. The outer sections are in 5/4, and the middle section is in 9/8, in case you like to know such things.

Distant Bells is the first piece from my upcoming book, Polyrhythms for Pianists. The book has improvisation suggestions, instructional pages on how to play various polyrhythms, and 13 polyrhythmic etudes. Distant Bells is written in a way that makes 2 against 3 easy to play, and is in Phrygian mode.

"I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently?
And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says,
"Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again." ~Lewis Carroll
Winter is loosely based on a motive from The Snow is Dancing, by Debussy.
