yeah uh hmm

for 8 performers and fixed media

written for The St. Olaf Percussion Ensemble

premiere: Apr. 28, 2018 St. Olaf College, Northfield, MN

directed by: Dave Hagedorn



This work is an audio presentation on "inspirational music-making and radical entrepreneurship" which are two things that I largely dislike so the work is supposed to be a bit funny, I suppose.

The work has no globally unifying printed notation or a score in the traditional sense, rather, the 8 performers all are given sonic signs in an "audio score" which are present in the fixed media and trigger an action to occur in performance.

The work uses traditional percussion instruments as well as lamps.
