About Points of Departure Nicholas Papador writes, "When I moved to Canada in 2005 I had the good fortune of participating in the Windsor Canadian Music Festival presented by the Windsor Symphony Orchestra and University of Windsor School of Music. Over the course of several years, and after exposure to a fantastic body of work by a range of composers, I became enthralled with the rich repertoire of contemporary Canadian solo percussion music. In 2008, I made a commitment to exploring this repertoire and promoting it in domestic and international venues. The project began in earnest upon becoming a permanent resident of Canada and receiving a Canada Council Grant to prepare and present solo Canadian percussion works. After a number recitals and international performances of this material set about documenting the pieces that appear on Points of Departure. With expert guidance of Producer Ray Dillard and engineer Douglas Romanow, I completed the recording right about the same time I became a citizen of Canada. To me, this recording not only documents essential Canadian percussion compositions, but also reflects my musical journey in as a relatively recent Canadian."

Featured composers on the CD:
Nicolas Gilbert
Christien Ledroit
Isabelle Panneton
Nicholas Papador
François Rose
Linda Catlin Smith
