Thierry de Mey (b.1945)

Musique de Tables (1999)

7 minutes

3 Players

Instrumentation: 3 tables

Program Note: Composed for three percussionists using a table as their musical instrument, utilizes different types of strokes to produce a variety of tones. The score uses graphic notation to represent both position of fingers and hands and the rhythmic figuration. Table music links the visual and aural – making choreography and musical tone equally important. –Christine Augspurger
