Title of Piece: Fabrication 10: Itch

Number of Percussion Players: 1

Total Number of Players: 2

Instrumentation: bass clarinet and marimba

Program Note:

Fabrication 10: Itch is an intense energy burst.  Marked “hard, energetic, tight, and as fast as possible,” the two players move from disparate, interlocking lines to long passages of unison, disjointed rhythms, and back again.  Like an out of control roller coaster, Itch takes the listener on an exciting, wild ride.

Itch was written for Amy Advocat and Matt Sharrock.
