tIme wrp-ng

For percussion quartet.

This piece is about the manipulation of our perceived time. Different techniques are applied to invite the listener to experiment a variety of temporal experiences. The title is a joke with the concept “time warping,” which is an algorithm to analyze events over time, “time wrapping,” which is just an abstract way of thinking how could we get our time wrapped, and “Wurupong,” which is a city in Ghana. I leave the choice to the listeners, who can choose between Time Warping, Time Wrapping, and Time Wurupong, or even something in between.


Premiered by Rela Percussion: Patrick Fitzgibbon, Drew Parent, Thom Monks, and Mike List.

Recorded at December 4, 2016, during the premiere.
