Programme Notes / Performance Details :

Psalm 104 for Multiple Percussion is a challenging work written in the fall of 2007. The idea was to use a multi-percussion setup of drums and cymbals to depict some of the characteristics of God. Psalm 104 reflects on several traits of God, such as His greatness and majesty, His care and perfect precision in His creation, and His provision and ability to satisfy man’s heart. Publisher`s Notes: Psalm 104 is a vigorous new multi-percussion solo by composer Brian Blume. Using a tight configuration of only drums and cymbals, the soloist navigates a series of complex melodic lines requiring rhythmic dexterity between hands and feet. Demanding power, sensitivity, precision, and restraint, Psalm 104 will draw audiences in while the soloist expresses both reverence and intensity.
