Donnie Bell's Chronicles, a multi-movement work scored for a percussion quintet, portrays the heartbreaking tale of Toucan, a sad and lonesome creature searching for love. Spiraling through a never-ending freefall of desolate longing, Toucan encounters an exceedingly beautiful and most illustrious nightingale, Nickel. The two fall for each other, instantly. And, though veering towards a seemingly brighter sense of belonging and amity, all is not as well as hoped.
- In Love With Love
- Summer Of Darkness
- Rescued In Rain
- Toucan's Revenge
Alongside this new found love trails an indifferent world of imperil hazards and bitter chances. Beset by Nickel's underlying ambitions, Toucan finds himself pulled into a brutal downfall of deceit and demise. Spinning beyond control, Toucan attempts to escape a descending fate of such unfavorable measures, while struggling to overcome his incurable affection for the malevolent nightingale...
March 2009 marked Bell's debut as a composer with the premiere of Toucan's Revenge at Lagerquist Hall, Tacoma, WA. (Almost a year prior to the release of Chronicles.)
