Work for Copper Wired started in the early spring of 2015, and even though the work was entered into the PAS contest for that year, the idea of such a piece had been on the composer’s mind for quite a while. Even though the work contains no programmatic ideas, it is in some part inspired by Edgard Varèse’s Poem Électronique . The "low bell” tolling sound is a clear reference to this pivotal work. Copper Wired was the first-place winner of the Percussive Arts Society’s 2015 International Composition Contest.
