Nucleation is the initial process that occurs in the formation of a crystal from a solution, a liquid, or a vapor, in which a small number of ions, atoms, or molecules become arranged in a pattern characteristic of a crystalline solid, forming a site upon which additional particles are deposited as the crystal grows. Often associated with carbonation.

Second-prize winner in the 2019 Portland Percussion Group Composition Competition. They’ll give the west-coast premiere in October, 2019!
