By using standard instrumentation, Houllif has created a composition in J.P. playable by a wide array of percussionists (from high school to professional). The rhythmic language features constantly changing meters. Each of the four parts is equally as challenging as the next. Perfect as a chamber piece on a recital or a showcase on a percussion ensemble concert.
