The piano piece Bad HombresJumping Over my Wall While Yelling '¡Arriba!, ¡Arriba!' was composed inBremen, Germany, in August 2018, for the project 45miniatures by pianist Nick Phillips. The overall character ofthis piece responds vaguely to Nicholas Phillips' suggestion: playful/childishoutbursts, in the form of "heckler chords" or "bad hombre-likenon-chord tones". The title depicts asurrealistic, clownesque, ridiculous situation; a dream for some and anightmare for others.

For those totally unaware: the expression "Bad Hombres" was used by president Donald Trump during the third 2016 United States Presidential Debate. While answering a question about his immigration policy, Donald Trump stated that there were a lot of drug lords in the United States and that they needed to be removed. He concluded his comment by saying "we have some bad hombres here and we have to get them out." (thus implying that the responsible of US' drug problems are Latinos)

Character and moods: happy, merry, mysterious.

Aboutthe performance

All the piece consists of mini clusters (two minor seconds). Thenotation can be sometimes obscure (due to the many unavoidable accidentals). Tofacilitate the reading (deciphering) of the score, the easiest is to follow thehighest note of each cluster: they usually form a simple chord. For instance,bar 17 is (melodically speaking) a F7 chord. Got it?

L = Left Hand

R = Right Hand

The verbal comments along the music are not meant to be actuallyread aloud, but "alla mente" (like in some Satie's music). However,if you want to recite them at concert, go ahead.
