TesseraeItem nr.: TSPCE19-021
by Mason Lynass
Mason Lynass composed his percussion ensemble piece Tesserae so that it could be performed by 3 or 4 players and still hold its laid-back, groovy feel. It has elements of minimalism and “drum and bass” grooves. Depending on whether it’s performed as a trio or a quartet, the piece can be felt in two different ways: if performed by 3 players, the piece can be felt in 12/8 time and if performed by 4 players, the piece can be felt in 3/4 time. This piece was the winning work in Portland Percussion Group’s 2017 Call for Scores and was premiered in 2017 at the Shout House in Portland, Oregon.
