Shades of Glass by Dustin Schulze is an elaborate piece for large percussion ensemble containing colors and themes inspired by the famed American repetitive-structure composer, Philip Glass. Its aim is to create a hypnotic sense of euphoria by way of layered, repetitive figures, and colorful textures.

The piano plays a substantial role in adding to the overall landscape, and the piece will require all players to have a keen sensitivity for how the whole ensemble is greater than the sum of its parts. This piece is unique and challenging, and also quite accessible for a wide variety of audiences.
