Right Track is a piece written for solo snare drum and pre-recorded track. This piece requires the performer to play with only one stick in their right hand. Meanwhile, the left hand creates different sounds and textures by using the fingers, dampening with the palm, and maniuplating the head to create a higher pitch. The rhythmic line of the piece corresponds with the accompanying pre-recorded track. Written in an electronic style, the track provides a melodic structure in juxtaposition with the performers snare drum solo. The piece requires the performer to use all parts of the snare drum membrane, and various types of rudimental strokes to achieve the desired timbres for the piece.
