3rd Place Winner of the 2005 Percussive Arts Society Composition Contest, Adaptation divides into three contrasting movements – Improvisation, Meditation & Revelation. Led primarily by the keyboard percussion, the three battery percussion parts pepper the piece with even more color and drive.

Program Notes

3rd Place Winner of the 2005 Percussive Arts Society Composition Contest, Adaptation is reworking of Daughtrey's award-winning piece, Episodes for Solo Piano, now scored for percussion ensemble.

When one goes through any life changes, one must experience several stages of adaptation. Each movement represents one of these stages:

I. Improvisation - in which you are caught off-guard and you are forced to fly by the seat of your pants

II. Meditation - in which you take time to reflect on your life and try to discover solutions

III. Revelation - in which a light bulb goes off and you find the answer.
