Description

What do Edward Hopper’s Excursions into Philosophy, Alberto Giacometti’s Walking Man, and Winslow Homer’s The Gulf Stream have in common? Each of these powerfully important works of art inspired a movement of Jason DeCristofaro’s solo for multipercussion entitled Singularity Triptych. As DeCristofaro describes it, “Each of these three art works capture various characteristics of the human individual as a subject. Similarly, each of the three movements of Singularity Triptych capture the essence of the individual spirit, while recognizing [the artist’s] visual depiction of individuality.”

Singularity Triptych was commissioned by the Asheville Ballet, and was premiered by Victoria Nelson on May 8, 2015 for the Asheville Ballet's "Spring Awakenings" performance at the Diana Wortham Theatre in Asheville, North Carolina.

This piece is professionally printed and ships in a bound, hard copy format.

Instrumentation

Drums (3 graduated concert toms, large bass drum)

Cymbals & gongs (5 suspended cymbals, hi-hat, tam-tam)

Accessories (2 bell plates, 4 triangles* (2 muted, 2 suspended)


*Can be performed with 2 triangles if necessary.
