Turmoil is defined as a state or condition of extreme confusion, agitation, or commotion. The concept is of an individual struggling to resolve conflicting feelings between what is expected of them and what they actually want. The hints of dark and light music represent the resulting struggles when the 2 ideas are found to be at conflict with each other.

Commissioned by Tim Decker and written as “The Thin Line” for Rancho Cotate HS (Rohnert Park, CA).  Revised September 2018.
