Hook
Percussion Quartet
8 mins
1991

HOOK was commissioned by Ensemble Bash for performance in the 1992 Park Lane Group Concerts .

Perversely, having been given an unlimited choise of percussion instruments to work with, I chose four marimbas as the medium best suited to the fast and rhythmic music I wanted to write. I felt that in order for the little counterpoints to come though properly the four players should perform on instruments of the same timbre and not ‘rouge it up’ with lots of unnecessary clatter. Having said that there is a little punctuating clatter supplied by rototoms and an ironic splash cymbal.
