for Percussion Trio and Live Electronics
Composer: Brian Sears
beneath the universal strife, the hidden harmony in all things…for Percussion Trio and Live Electronics is my thesis that was performed on October 30th 2015 in Bryan Recital Hall at Bowling Green State University. This piece represents the elusive pursuit of peace and balance being interupted by chaos and disorder. Drone tones vocalized by the performers and augmented by the electronics are representitive of our attempts to attain balance, and are interupted by flurries of activity and chaos in the percussion. Throughout the piece the sections of order become longer and longer before they finally achieve a tenuous balance with the rhythmic gestures in the percussion.
A HUGE THANK YOU to Kelly Gervin, Felix Reyes, and Michael Keller for performing this piece, and to Jen Meister for conducting it. This could not have happened without your talent and dedication.
