  • Notes & Instrumentation

    This percussion sextet written predominantly in 6/4 phrases in alternating bars of 5/8 and 7/8. The 6/4 motivic development blends and creates a rhythmic tension against the 2-3-2-2-3 beaming. A rhythmic motif of sixteenth notes on the “two” groupings drive the piece toward mysterious or aggressive versions of the motif. Intertwined are micro and macro rhythmic development so that often 5/8-7/8 will be overlaid with 5/16-7/16 or 5/4-7/4 developments.

    Program Notes
    Convective Motives is a percussion sextet premiered by the University of Texas at Arlington Percussion Ensemble November 2016. It is a “footprint” composition meaning the setup and instrumentation are the same as Prevalent Motives allowing a transition without delay from one piece to the next. The composition, written predominantly in 6/4, intriguingly phrases in alternating patterns of 5/8 and 7/8. The 6/4 patterns blend and create a unique rhythmic challenge for the players.

    • Convective Motives Percussion Ensemble sextet

      This percussion sextet was composed after returning from a trip to Hungary in 2016. I was interested in the Hungarian tonality and rhythmic aspects of that fascinating country found throughout the music of Bela Bartok. The piece pays tribute to the interplay between many cultures in Hungary represented by integrating percussive sounds with melodic fragments. Written predominantly in 6/4, it actually phrases in alternating bars of 5/8 and 7/8. The 6/4 motivic development blends and creates a rhythmic tension against the 2-3-2-2-3 beaming. A rhythmic motif of sixteenth notes on the “two” groupings drive the piece sometimes toward mysterious and other times aggressive presentations of the motif. Like many of my works I have intertwined the use of micro and macro rhythmic development so that often 5/8-7/8 will be overlaid with 5/16-7/16 or 5/4-7/4 developments of themes. conVective motiVes was premiered by the University of Texas at Arlington Percussion Ensemble in November 2016. It is a “footprint” composition meaning the setup and instrumentation are the same as my partner composition “preValent motiVes” allowing ensembles to transition seamlessly without delay from one piece to the next.
