Jabberwocky - 2012, (rev.'16)

for speaking timpanist, ca. 7'00"

Written in 2012 as a study on characterization and text setting Jabberwocky explores a wide range of emotional and musical possibilities while creating a volatile and cartoonish atmosphere. The work draws its text from a variety of sources from literary classics to Saturday morning cartoons and stand-up comedy.
This range of influences allows the performer to embody a number of personalities, creating a fractured musical landscape, which must be navigated with the apparent ease of a conversation.
