About this Work

Commissioned by the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, Planet Damnation showcases the timpani and the virtuosic skills of Laurence Reese, in a solo role. Inspired by the timpani's dual nature of percussive power and melodic expressiveness, I aimed to create a piece that allowed the timpani to sing in its unique way, featuring passages where the instrument finds its melodic voice. Drawing influences from martial music and action movie soundtracks, the composition exudes a sense of intensity and overwhelming power, reflecting the challenge and dynamism of the timpani as a solo instrument. The premiere of Planet Damnation took place on October 19, 2007, at the Michael Fowler Centre in Wellington, New Zealand, with Laurence Reese performing alongside the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra.
