For four players. A quartet using the standard percussion battery, this work explores the often-overlooked expressive qualities of percussion instruments. A number of unique but easy-to-learn techniques give the players a variety of new sounds to explore, and the challenge of playing this quiet and haunting piece will bring a new understanding of their instruments. This is a great piece for "in-between" the hard-driving works. Instrumentation: Player 1: snare drum, low tom-tom, chimes; Player 2: tam-tam, suspended cymbal, sizzle cymbal, sleigh bells, 3 temple blocks or 3 mounted woodblocks; Player 3: bass drum, maracas; Player 4: 3 timpani, large suspended cymbal.
