Strata by Sean Patrick Harvey is a collection of three short pieces: One Big Hocket, Particle Emission, and Changing Phases. Advanced in level and ranging in duration from 2:00 to 3:45, all three pieces showcase the intricate textures that result from composite rhythms, canon, and interwoven layers.

An adaption of the 13th-century polyphonic form that takes its name from the French word for hiccup, One Big Hocket contains split rhythms in every bar and includes a flexible improvisatory section. Particle Emission creates textural interest in part by its use of brushes and sticks along with a shared brake drum, and the vivace Changing Phases is a rhythmic showpiece. It is an excellent finale if performed as a suite but, like the other two pieces in the set, it is musically effective individually as well.

Strata is provided as a full, bound folio and includes a CD-ROM containing individual parts and audio recordings.

Full Instrumentation:
2 concert snare drums, 1 brake drum.
