Programme Notes / Performance Details :This piece was commissioned by percussionist Matthew Posnick and composed during the summer of 1974. It is constructed of three elements: sustained sounds, rhythmic motives and glissandi. Combinations of these elements are explored during the three sections of the work. Electronic sounds which appear as triangles in an oscilloscope (triangle waves) were the basic building blocks of the tape, which was realized at the Brooklyn College Electronic Music Studio founded by Jacob Druckman. The score employs a combination of proportional and convention notation. Requires four pedal and two chain-tuned timpani. TRIANGULATION was originally published by Lang Percussion in 1976. The music and CD is now available from Kirkside Music (ASCAP).

Metered by seconds, not measured. Set up is shaped like a triangle. 6 timpani total: 4 pedal drums and 2 chain-tuned Goodman timpani. Requires rubbing stick against the chain. Also hitting shell, near rim and at center. Graphic notation. There is a tape acc. to this piece. Tape might need some editing. (From the Jeff Moore Archive)
