Program note –
Moving Air is a short, up tempo work for four percussionists & pre-recorded cd.
The Tape part consists of various unconventional sounds derived from the slamming of car doors, the breaking of glass & the collision of garbage cans. These are combined with conventional percussion sounds, all of which have been sampled & triggered to play in sequence, sometimes forwards (sounding as they normally do), & sometimes backwards (the sound is reversed so that the decay becomes the attack). The players are instructed to “play it loud!” to create optimum movement of air – hence the title.
