Broken Breathing

Broken Breathing

Solo improvising percussionist and Wind Ensemble; 2017 (10')

 

WesWinds with Salvatore LaRusso premiering Broken Breathing in Crowell Hall at Wesleyan University

 

In the Spring 2016 I was approached by Bill Sand, conductor of WesWinds to play a concerto with them. The renting of the score for the piece I wanted to play, however, became a big financial and organizational undertaking, so instead I proposed to write a piece myself to perform with WesWinds in the spring 2017.

 

The piece draws on three sources of inspiration: noise, marching music, and techno.

The elements progress from one to another in the series of episodes throughout which the percussionist improvises a solo part using the verbal instructions included in the score.
