Programme Notes / Performance Details :

Everything but the kitchen sink? This piece requires the players to do some of their own “scavenging” to find and create all of the instruments necessary to perform it. Fairly simple rhythms throughout (limited to quarter notes and eighth notes) make this a perfect novelty piece for a high school percussion ensemble or young college ensemble.
