“Enveloped” takes inspiration from the four elements of a sound wave, the ADSR (Attack, Decay, Sustain, Release) envelope. Each of the techniques utilized in this piece are intended to be a microscopic insight into the macro-level envelope. This piece is dedicated to Dr. Dave Hall and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Percussion Ensemble.
