Get off the downbeat
solo percussion

Score

Written at the request of Chris Nappi. A chorale slowly dissolves into gradually noisier instruments, and the beat gradually dissipates into more complex tuplets to be played on a suspended cymbal.

Could Crispin stem verboseness in the sea,
The old age of a watery realist,
Triton, dissolved in shifting diaphanes
Of blue and green?

The Comedian as the Letter C
