Bukkowacymbals! (2015)


for two violent people

ca. 10 min.

Program Note

 The act of covering one’s ears contradicts from the act of enjoying a musical experience. It is an act to protect one’s self from loud or uncomfortable noise and overwhelming flow of information, and reclaiming one’s self. Bukkowacymbals! is a response to witnessing a number of composition students in conservatories composing atonal music for the sake of schoolwork. If the composers do not want to listen to their works themselves, who else will listen?
