MOVING PICTURES IN FRAMES
for percussion trio
NEW, from composer James Romig and Parallax Music Press...
Moving Pictures in Frames, for percussion trio, was completed in 2018. The work, which lasts approximately nine minutes, is a strict canon: all three parts are identical, but each starts at a different point on a looped continuum. It employs a large-scale formal structure identical to that of The Frame Problem (2003), but the music's surface detail is inspired by rhythmic motives found within the first four tracks of Moving Pictures, the 1981 album by the Canadian progressive-rock trio Rush. The composition is written in four-four time, but individual rhythmic cells seldom reinforce the notated meter, creating frequent shifts in the perceived pulse as different segments of music crescendo and diminuendo.
