PUNX (2016) was commissioned by Broken Arrow HS Percussion Ensemble for their 2016 Midwest Clinic performance. It’s scored for 6-7 players; two 5.0 octave marimbas (or one 5.0 and one 4.3), two glocks, one vibraphone, two percussion parts (mounted kick drum, snare drum, floor tom, crash cymbal, hi-hats). The two percussion parts can be adapted for one drum set player if desired.
I was a punk rock kid in my younger years. I played in a few bands, wrote tons of songs, and developed the ability to play really fast drum set. The punk scene taught me to be a self thinker, to question things, and that it was OK to be different. I had fun in the scene, and it definitely influenced my attitude and musical journey.
PUNX pays homage to the music of my youth and is sort of a punk rock anthem for percussion ensemble. I thought it would be nice to revisit the sounds of my younger years; something rebellious, quirky and fun.
