The title Kinetica derives from the Greek term meaning movement or motion. A pulsing, forward drive is ever present in this work. Kinetica aims to introduce young or non-professional players in a practical way to some of the more accessible styles and procedures of 20th Century music, such as minimalism, the use of modes, and dissonant harmonies, with some influences from Latin and film music.
Instrumentation: Piccolo, 3 flutes, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets in B flat, bass clarinet, 2 bassoons, 2 horns, 3 trumpets in B flat, 2 trombones, tuba, timpani, percussion (3 players), strings.
Duration: 7 min.
Commission note: Commissioned by Kambala School.
