PIECES FOR PERCUSSION


The record contains six compositions for two and four players and three solo improvisations.
All these pieces explore very limited material. In each piece the instrumental frame is narrowed
down to one instrument or type of instruments and in the pieces for more than one player all parts
are constructed from the same material. The three solo improvisations too have strong conceptual
limitations.

I love the regular irregularity of patterns and textures found in nature, the shape of a tree or the
sound of water running over rocks in a stream. I am thinking of these pieces as images of such natural
phenomena, something ancient and archaic that has been there long before us and will probably stay
much longer.
