|NEW WORK COMPLETED:
I have now complete WATER a percussion sextet with piano. The piece is in 3 movements and lasts about 25 minutes. (The sextet was commissioned by a consortium of universities and conservatories organisd by Michael Burritt.)
In August 2012 I finished 'Burritt Variations' a new piece for solo marimba - commissioned by Michael Burritt. Michael premiered the piece at PASIC the 2nd of November 2012
PROJECT REACHING FINAL STAGES:
Percussion Trio. James Beauton (firstname.lastname@example.org) and TALA RASA are organising a consortium to commission a trio where each player has a mallet instrument as the main voice and non pitched instruments built around the mallet instrument into a multi percussion set up.
The following is a list of percussion projects/pieces that I would like to compose.
1_ Estudios de Frontera. I would like to add a third (middle/slower) movement to my percussion quintet. This would require a level of funding of about US $ 5,000.
2_ Concerto for percussion and symphony orchestra. This is an initiative by Michael Burritt.
3_ Piece for marimba and string quartet.
Since there are obvious logistic difficulties in touring or even performing a piece for marimba and string quartet, it does not make sense to write anything other that a very substantial piece for this combination. The duration of the piece would have to be at least 20/25 minutes.
