Caprice, for solo vibraphone, is a study in the portrayal of my emotional struggles through the medium of the vibraphone. The piece itself is characterized by three contrasting sections, each representing a specific emotional challenge common to the human experience. The first movement is based around a strange groove characterized by harsh intervals and an uneven time signature to encapsulate the feeling of tension and anxiety associated with Trepidation. The second movement, Alexithymia, is characterized by having slow-moving harmony contrasting various decorations and syncopations akin to more upbeat music. This movement is representative of one’s struggle to understand their emotions, and thus, it is intended to sound somewhat strange and indescribable in feeling. The final movement, Dissociation, is based entirely around the reinterpretation of a D Major 7 chord. It begins with a groove that begins to change after every repetition with brief interruptions by a motive representing one’s fade into and out of reality.
