I recently completed a new composition entitled Spur. It is scored for solo snare drum with audio tape accompaniment, and was written with Jacques Delecluse in mind. His snare drum etudes are some of my favorite pieces ever written. They are so thoughtful and nuanced; I wanted to compose a piece through a similar lens while simultaneously blending my own compositional language.
The piece was commissioned by a consortium led by Korry Friend, who recently released a beautiful video performance of the piece (see below). Sheet music for Spur will be available in November, 2016 to correspond with PASIC. A big thank you to Korry and the consortium for bringing this piece to life!
