View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Threads, written for So Percussion in 2005, is a half-hour-long cantata for percussion quartet in ten short movements. There are three threads that are interwoven in the piece: Arias and Preludes that focus on the metallic pitched sounds of vibraphones, glockenspiel and metallic pipes; Choruses in which drumming predominates,; and Recitatives made largely from Cage-like noise instruments, bottles flower pots, crotales, etc. The aims of the different threads are to highlight the wide range of qualities that percussion instruments are capable of, from lyrical and tender to forceful and aggressive, and weave them into one continuous texture. The movements are performed without interruption. This is the full score for the piece.
