Taking Chances (2014). The pieces in this collection deal with danger and uncertainty, risks and rewards. Every challenge holds an opportunity. These short but adventurous pieces explore more advanced pedalling techniques, octatonic and ethnic scales, irregular time signatures, increased dissonances and energetic rhythms, all being full of youthful vigour and life.
