For percussion quartet
Notes from the score: We are living in challenging times. It weighs on me heavily, and I spend a great deal of time reflecting on the potentially catastrophic damage being done to our society, to the environment, and to our political and educational systems. I needed a way to express my wide range of feelings, and Canon Fodder was the result. Violence is becoming almost normal, barriers are being forged, our planet is in peril, and yet clocks continue to tick away, as they always have and always will, completely indifferent to our actions.
Canon Fodder is dedicated to Brett William Dietz and Hamiruge – the Louisiana State University Percussion Group.
