Zivkovic-Born to Beat Wild (for trumpet and very big drum)-BD/TP - Product Information

Written down [by Nebojia Zivkovic] (as far as one can write it down at all) in just a couple of furious nights in February 2001, "Born To Beat wild"  was composed out of the "diplaced" sound-sketches, collected in my head (and soul) in pre-natal period, during  my childhood and also probably in most recent times. Some music is simply inside a man, and he carries it trough his whole life, - and possibly further.

Or, it might be a musical "farewell" to my roots, conveyed in this particular piece by leaving one's origins (represented by the material at the beginning) and adding more and more new, and perhaps disturbing elements. Distorting the original sound from the "inner self"  is achieved with wilder and wilder runs, with uneven and increasingly unbridled rhythms from the Balkans.

The music is notated without barlines, although it is in certain realtively determined metres. Born to beat wild  is a musical dialogue, which allows the performers to combine written and (in some parts) spontaneously improvised material. Musically speaking, - it is a permanent crescendo, a constant increasing of the energy, that climaxes in extremes on both sides.
