KITCHEN KONCERTO for Percussion Ensemble
Commisioned in 2005, Kitchen Koncerto is in three distinct sections, played continuously.The first section is a Canon, first expressed as a rhythmic pattern, as is the melodic idea which follows.The section ends with a roll on the Gong, which increases in volume, then dies away.
The middle section is a reflective and atmospheric soundscape which intrigued the audience at the first performance, judging by the emails subsequently received.
The final section is a polyrhythmic structure in quicker tempo which produced an atmosphere of fun from the original performers.
Kitchen Koncerto was first performed by the percussion group Brake Drum Assembly in London on 21 September 2005, as part of the All Ears Festival of Contemporary Music
