“Run" is a solo for drum kit + electronic playback.

"Run" was originally written for Duo Cortona (voice + violin) and won the Duo Cortona Composition Competition at the 2018 Cortona Sessions for New Music. In early 2019, I created a reimagining of "Run" as an electronic/pop song. From late 2019 to early 2020, I transformed the electronic version of "Run" into the backing track for the most current version: drum kit + electronic playback.

(Lyrics for the original voice + violin version)
running back // through the field, you don't know it
in the town // where I was born
in the skies // of your memories

can you see it? // is it burning hot?
in the city? // dying, burning, rot?

running // fire // flashing // burning // in the city
flashing // fire // throwing smoke into the air

smoke fills the sky // running out of time

burning brighter // for fear // fighter
running out // sky of cloud
running faster // burning brighter // fear or fighter

unknowing // running // it hits // the flame // deep inside
flame and ash // where it sticks // no sleeping here // tonight
darker than it // you would know

running out of your time // running out of your time
running out of your time // running out of your mind
your time running // your time running
and goes up in smoke
