Back to Music Search

Taking as its starting point the most primitive of musical ideas, the repetition of a single note, Spike moves through many environments, rising and falling in waves of intensity — some ecstatic, some dark, some effervescent — all the while maintaining this primary impulse, tapping out a one-note rhythm. Spike was premiered by Brian Resnick (perc) and Stephen Gosling (pf), at the Juilliard School, New York, NY, on 21 February 1999.
