Work Overview

"This work, scored for any three instruments, uses repeated one and two-bar phrases to construct an extended work based on the four-against-three polyrhythm. Working at a brisk suggested tempo (260 bpm), the player juxtaposes a four-beat pattern in one limb against a three-beat pattern in the opposing limb. The player switches instruments in each limb to create minimalist melodic patterns as the piece evolves. The length of the work may vary based on the player's prerogative to repeat any phrase." - Percussive Notes 69
