Commissioned by: Joseph Van Hassel and Kristin Agee

World Premiere: May 13, 2006. Ohio University. Athens, OH

A short energetic piece, Trudge Blasted Exotic is conceived as a sort of extension of a rock drum set, with a whole range of extra musical colors added to the palette. The music is inspired by the fragmented, irregular rhythms of progressive rock and experimental electronica.
