(Im)pulses

脈動

2017

Percussion quartet and dancer (10')

The words “pulses” and “impulse” suggest a variety of meanings such as the “rhythmical throbbing of the arteries,” “musical beats,” “momentum,” and a “sudden strong urge.” This piece was written for a dancer and four percussionists, playing two marimbas, bongos, tom-toms and woodblocks. It was commissioned by Toolbox Percussion in 2017 with sponsorship from CASH Music Fund.
