40 under 40

I’ve been commissioned by Synergy Percussion in Australia to write a 40-second miniature, as part of a 40-composer project to celebrate Synergy’s 40th year. I’ve never written something so short, and for an Australian group!

I’ll likely go further with my board game idea that I started with Theseus and the Minotaur last year, a piece that I wrote for the Asian Young Musicians Connection in Taipei. That piece was a duo for two percussionists that “chase” each other on a game board. I like the idea of creating a game where someone can win, and where the players need to strategize against each other.

More soon! Information about the project can be found here (and you can even commission a piece of your own!): http://synergypercussion40under40.com/
