Description

Composer's Note:

Gizmo began as a study in rhythmic patterns and duration after listening to Iannis Xenakis’ Psappha one too many times. I realized, as work progressed, that the various beat patterns reminded me of some vast, clanking, whirring, Rube Goldberg contraption gone awry. The machinery roars into life just to have some monkey wrench thrown in that causes the whole apparatus to sputter and die. I felt like the mad scientist, combining various elements of wood, metal and membrane in an attempt to master my imperfect creation.
