"Dashing Towards the Horizon" for solo keyboard

This was written (and performed live) during my senior year in high school. It was composed in a rush overnight for a coffeehouse performance the next day. The live recording is from that performance. The piece is a somewhat naively and directly influence by the progressive metal and/or neoclassical metal genre. The pitch-wheel of the synthesizer is used to a great extent, in order to emulate pitch bends and hammer-ons of a distorted electric guitar. One of the main "hooks" of this style of music is to emulate the electric guitar as much as possible on the synthesizer. You will also hear distortion guitar riffs as well as soaring solos. No score is available for this work.
