Solo for Percussion


The goal of this composition is twofold. First, is to explore the different timbres of some of the percussion instruments which have an "indefinite" pitch, and the second is to create a composition where these instruments are perceived as playing "melodic" motives. For this reason, the rhythms evolve slowly and are kept simple. In the final section, the drums return with snares, and gradually accelerate to an improvisational conclusion.
