Program Notes

Structure Set was originally written in the Spring of 1997 for the Preparatory percussion ensemble at the Cleveland Institute of Music. The version here has been re-written but contains much of the original material.

Most of the musical ideas are derived from the rhythmic cell of the first bar of music. Careful attention should be taken to always find a good balance between ostinato and thematic ideas. In general, the ostanati should not be played to heavily.[1]
