no reason we're going to play a fugue that uses crazy 'instruments', such as a washtub and a lion's roar...and lots more that i can't seem to remember right now.

and it has all these weird counterrhythms too.
it's hard. it's crazy. it's awesome.

Enclosed in sound
Tossed back and forth by pitch
toyed with by opposite noises

shocked by dynamics

A room taken over
must


........listen carefully



ting-ting-ting-ting-ting


mallets softly tap the vibraphone
and a peaceful

hummmmmmmm

resounds


CRASSSHH!


a cymbal interjects rudely
and a one... two..

BANG!


sticks brought down angrily
onto a responding drum

prolonnnnnnnged rinnnnnnnnngs

echoes


first notes of a piano melody
breaking softly through the clamor
only to be trampled

BOOm!
ThUMP...

A room must struggle
to hold it all in
maintain the balance
within these walls

focused and trembling
it creates space
for reverberations
in this cacophony of confusion

it struggles

withholds and contains
the dissonance

just about to burst
when finally
crucially
ringing dies down
and vibrations slow

It must recover
and for a second regain harmony
until an insistent ping on the triangle
reminds a room of what it is
of what it has to be
