The title of the piece, Tap-Click represents the sound motive and rhythmic structure for the entire work. Each player is assigned a "tap" and "click" sound which is introduced during the work in the following order: Two Snare Drums (low and high)/Two Kick Drums and Claves (low and high)/Two Temple Blocks and Woodblocks (low and how)/Two Concert Bass Drums (low and high). The work is performed with the players placed around the audience, creating a "surround-sound" effect. Tap-Click received its premiere by the Washington State University Percussion Ensemble under the direction of the composer at the Festival of Contemporary Art Music on February 2, 2012.
