Nori is a piece for string orchestra that is based on the songs from my childhood that I used to sing when I played games with my friends, such as hopscotch. It takes its rhythmic and melodic motives from two of my favorite game songs, which share similar pentatonic melodic profile. Overall, the piece is an impression of the time in which I was the most playful and carefree.

Nori was recorded by Oberlin Chamber Orchestra under the direction of Raphael Jiménez in October 2019 in Oberlin, OH.
