Stephens, Wes

Medium/Advanced Concert Percussion

4 Players

"The Cage We Make" is a not-so-subtle nod to the percussion quartets of John Cage, most notably his Constructions. The work is built around the rhythmic pattern of 2-3-5-7-11 with its various forms being manipulated through retrograde, canon, rotation of the pattern between players, and rotation of the pattern in the orchestration itself. The piece starts simply and grows more complex as it progresses through its four sections with all players ending in rhythmic unison.
