Scored for ten percussionists and eleven instruments, this work utilizes a collection of percussion instruments frequently referred to as "toys." The idea for this composition is rooted in the notion of highlighting these distinct instruments and presenting them in the performance forefront. This work sheds new light, from both a performance and a technical standpoint, on instruments that are often not looked upon as carrying an important role. Each individual part carries a distinct and challenging task in tying this piece together. This is proven by the multiple occurrences of layering in addition to the many rhythmic motives that are passed back and forth among instruments. Precision and the consistent eighth note will be the keys to this piece`s success.
