Soldiviero-Palindromes (2S)-P OS - Product Information

I've always been interested in word games, puzzles, symmetry and palindromes. After my freshman year at school, I decided to explore the idea of writing a piece that would flip directly at the center and then play itself backwards. Not knowing this had been done before and on a vastly more complex scale, I soon realized that the idea would never make for a "fun" piece to play, which was always the priority since I was writing the piece for an otherwise difficult percussion recital given by a friend. So I wrote it freely, deciding to simply explore this palindromic idea in different ways instead of letting it govern the entire work. Thus the piece has no predetermined form, rather an episodic feeling with short motives and longer ideas returning and developing. Sometimes a palindrome takes up only one bar, whereas much longer sections will appear flipped. The drum set feeling is evident in the choice of instruments, and the enjoyment in performance comes from the balance of unison playing, solo features, and tight hocketed interplay. - Jared Soldiviero
