#@&%!* (expletive deleted)
#@&%!* (expletive deleted) for Percussion Quartet was premiered in Ann Arbor, Michigan in December 2000. This dynamic piece exhibits a heightened state of frenetic energy through explosive outbursts and a bubbling undercurrent of churning rhythmic figures. It explores disparate musical influences like popular and world music, while highlighting the flexibility and virtuosity of the percussion ensemble. The title reflects the demanding physicality of the individual parts and the tricky ensemble work. In fact, I was once told the expletive should have been inserted!
Many thanks to Evan Chambers, Kristin Kuster, Roland Vazquez, Miller Asbill, Jay Bordeleau, Carrie Magin, Jason Markzon, and André Dowell for their artistic support.
