Rules (2019), for solo percussion, draws inspiration from non-linear narrative and the works in progress of Walt Whitman - his drafts, notes, and editorial marks, etc. This work uses the text from one of these works in progress - Rules for Composition (early 1850s). Rules explores the use of non-linear narrative as an aleatoric device for musical structure to simulate the creative process evident in Whitman's works in progress.
