Impulse Dance was written as a reaction to a pattern I noticed among myself and my fellow composers: music written about serious content matter. Recently, I have written and observed compositions around me that are based on grave, horrifying, intense and deep subjects. These pieces are certainly satisfying, but I felt the need to write a piece that is light-hearted as a result of this pattern. Impulse dance is intended to be a fun, rhythmic piece that could never reasonably be construed into something serious, bleak or saddening (although some listeners may try their hardest to do so!).
