Surly Bonds (2009) for drum set was commissioned by Calabrese Brothers Music, LLC and waswritten for and dedicated to percussionist Peter Jarvis. The principal underlying rhythm of thework is a somewhat martial ostinato presented quietly on the snare drum. This unchangingrhythm provides a grid against which other colors and rhythms attempt to break the “surlybonds” and assert their own rhythmic identity. After a first unsuccessful attempt to overwhelm,the voices try again—succeeding this time in achieving release in a free, cadenza-like passage.However, the ostinato returns again until the work ends with the almost “desperate” silencebetween the sounds of bass and snare drums.
