Description

Tink by Alan Keown was written for small instruments to be played with tiny implements giving it a light but tasteful sound pallete. Some sections of the piece are groove-oriented, while others are made to imitate the style of the contemporary composer, Paul Lansky. The instrumentation includes some found objects, like glass bottles, and instruments from different cultures like Japanese woodblocks, Chinese opera gongs, and nipple gongs.
