new work : percussion | piano | choir [2015-27]

This work, another in the series for bassoon, horn, double bass, percussion and choir is scored only for percussion (xylophone, chimes, gong and bass drum), including piano (technically a percussion instrument) and choir.

The percussion enters slowly, with a few motifs and the choir comes in underneath .  Each voice has a two note melodic cell, which they sing in overlapping fashion.  A new section begins with the entrance of the piano, and the choir again enters underneath with another section where each voice has a different two-note motif.  The piece ends with percussion and piano repeating some of their earlier material.
