This is a showcase piece for a solo saxophonist performing on 4 different instruments (soprano, alto, tenor, and baritone saxophones) and a HUGE collection of percussion instruments - and I mean HUGE collection! The University of Minnesota Percussion Ensemble performed this piece with Eugene Rousseau as soloist in 2006 at the Ted Mann Concert Hall, and even when we had most of the instruments, we still had to rent a low gong (I believe it was a Bb) below the staff in bass clef (!). It was certainly a huge undertaking for everyone involved. The piece was difficult and the large amount of equipment made for some interesting times with regards to set-ups. A large stage will be needed, so do not consider this piece unless you have a large space to work with, both for rehearsal and performance. - Fernando Meza

Piece is largely unmetered, but with very specific instructions about the sequence of certain entrances. Each percussionist requires a large battery of instruments. This would probably be a fascinating 20th century piece but the tremendous logistics for the percussion parts combined with the difficulty of the parts would make its performance an undertaking of very large proportions.
