Concerto for Viola, Percussion, and Casio Keyboard

for Viola, Junk Percussion, Casio Keyboard, Kazoo, Harmonica, and Drone

To be performed in several possible configurations from 2 to 5 or more players. 2 performer option requires electronic realization of Casio keyboard part.

2012. Written for violist John Stulz. 11 minutes.

My incredibly obtuse program notes:

On Process. Neither wholly natural nor rigorous.
Rudimentary development,
Moment form.
The old and the new, the polished and the amateur. The digital and the acoustic.
Ironic and serious, both.
