Seen and Heard

When I think about percussion, the first characteristic that comes to mind is theater. Watching percussionists run around the stage juggling many different instruments is particularly thrilling, and, above all else, is what has always attracted me to percussion music. Seen and Heard is about exactly this; while writing the piece, beyond the notes and rhythms, I was thinking about what the music would look like on stage. Seen and Heard is dedicated to Adam Holmes, and lasts about ten minutes.
