Medellín

Medellín is a short piece for percussion trio that explores imitative and augmented rhythms, intricate composite rhythms divided among all players, and the idea of "melodic" development with unpitched percussion. I often displace a basic rhythmic pattern by only a few sixteenth notes, creating accent patterns that travel across barlines and continue into other parts. The title refers not to the Colombian city but to a fictitious movie which was continuously sought after by the main character in HBO's Entourage.  

The piece was premiered on March 1st, 2009 by Peggy Bonner, Jeff Driscoll and Brian Spicklemire.
