Gay-Fear Cage (SP)-9T/Cro./P - Product Information
Fear Cage by Kirk J. Gay is named after a term used by paranormal researchers to describe a confined space with high electromagnetic field (EMF) readings. In these areas, one who is sensitive to such phenomena can feel uneasiness, paranoia, anxiety, nausea, and uncontrollable fear.
This unique duet requires the two performers to be stationed back to back inside a circle "cage" of 9 timpani. Specific textures such as bowed crotales and a prayer bowl on top of timpani heads provide a perfect complement to the accompanying audio soundscape which runs throughout the piece.
This piece comes with a full, bound score and includes a CD-Rom containing a professionally shot video performance, full-quality audio for the soundscape track, and all individual parts available for printing.
