Australian Premiere: One Study One Summary for marimba, tape and junk percussion by John Psathas

Following a preoccupation with larger-scale works, John Psathas has returned to the composition of extended works for smaller instrumental forces. One Study One Summary is a work for solo percussionist and tape as well as taking advantage of junk percussion, something that most percussionists have a collection off. As the title suggests the work is in two movements, and while the work exhibits the busy motoric textures for which Psathas is well known, reflective atmospheric textures predominant throughout.

Featured non-Australian music: John Psathas, Elliot Carter, Jaque Delecluse, Christopher Deane
