    A commissioned composition for Los Angeles-based Tommy Evan Lee's choreographic reinterpretation of "The Spanish Dance" from Tchaikovsky's "The Nutcracker". The piece and associated choreography appeared in the LA Unbound dance company's "Nutcracker Unbound" in December 2011.

    I created this reinterpretation of the original score based on the meter, tempo, and cues of Tommy's choreography. The lead-in and lead-out were specifically requested by Tommy, but otherwise the primary criteria for this version were:

    1. The piece had to include some recognizable elements of the original score.
    2. The dynamics of the music needed to reinforce but not overwhelm the sounds of the dancers' fans, a central feature of the choreography.
