Deconstruction Principles (2016)

for two percussionists: four toms and two glockenspiels with live-triggered audio and video playback.

Each drum has a trigger. Each trigger opens a gate. Each gate turns up the volume on a playing audio track. It’s like punching holes in controlled static. Written for Michael Garcia.

Bomb Track (2015)

for solo percussion and live-triggered audio playback.

Each drum has a trigger. Each trigger opens a gate. Each gate turns up the volume on a playing audio track. It’s like punching holes in controlled static. Written for Joseph Van Hassel.

‘Imagine the prison of repetition
A pitch-perfect perpetual misery
Awaiting each player ignition
Is a blanket of unusable memory’
