Maxi Music by James Tenney

The piece starts with a long cymbal roll, breaks into a pointalist solo on many instruments and ends with a long tam tam roll. In its simplicity of form, an exciting and beautiful percussion solo. This performaance took place in April 2009 at Theatre La Chapelle in Montréal.

This performance is edited for video in that the original cymbal roll is much longer (as required in Tenney’s score). For a true version buy my CD ‘Ten Planets‘. Thanks to Anthony Donofrio for requesting this clarification. – RS
