ABOUT THE PIECE:

Dusk is an exploration of rhythmic texture and the colour of a percussion ensemble. Each player is playing an ostinato rhythm with each hand. The different ostinati have accents which all move at different speeds, creating a texture in which the relationship of the accents between the players is always changing. Every time an accent is notated, instead of playing the note louder, the players use a different mallet to give a new timbre which jumps out of the texture. The combination of rhythms create a feeling of stasis with the accents pulling against that giving a feeling of change.
