Brief Meditation (2013)
for two percussionists
required instruments: 2 triangles, 2 suspended cymbals, crotales, suspended bell plates (4), wind chimes, tom, tam-tam, wood block (small)
Recently it occurred to me (or rather, I openly admitted to myself) that I can sometimes be an antsy, anxious person. Composing for Boyce Jeffries and Nick Micheels of the Noice Duo, I wanted to experiment in Brief Meditation with the concept musically evoking the meditative state, or being simply in the moment.
