Product details

Hypnotic Strains was composed for Vanessa Tomlinson in 1998 when we were both based at the University of California, San Diego. It is scored for a kind of "stand-up drum set" comprised of traditional drums and cymbals, along with "found object" or "junk" instruments such as bottles and bowls. This type of instrumentation though based on composer John Cage's early works, is very unique to Vanessa.
The first part of H.S. centres on the drums, and a special technique of bouncing the sticks to produce an echo effect. The second part begins with delicate and intricate rhythms played with chopsticks on an assortment of bowls, bottles and wood blocks, and then brings together the bouncing drum rhythms in a spiralling climax.
