Pinhead Dancing refers to the question 'How many angels can dance on the head of a pin?' and instead of answering how many, proposes how they might be dancing: ebullient, head-banging, and sometimes simply swaying in exhaustion. All instruments have demanding parts, especially the marimba. Some extended techniques requested for the wind players.
Instrumentation: Alto saxophone, trombone, marimba/percussion, double bass.
Difficulty: Advanced — Rhythmically challenging
Commission note: Commissioned by Andrew Sweeney
