Patterns And Decorations

This piece was written for Disquiet Junto Project 0278: MacConnel’s Jingle.

Kim MacConnel was a primary in the Pattern and Decoration art movement of the mid-1970s, which had an interest promoting trivialities as seen by Western culture, such as patterning. I wanted to offer this musically and while working on ideas it did not take long to get to a concept inspired by the work of Steve Reich.

The work is scored for percussion instruments, namely xylophone, vibraphone and harp.
