Description

Jim Casella’s work Truth or Consequence was written during the convergence of 2016 and 2017.  Casella states, “As I write this, it is a time where facts are selective and manipulated in ways to calibrate media coverage for political gain. As a result, the concept of truth has been endangered to the point where personal opinion can be passed off as fact however false it may be. This frightens me, and I fear the consequences the world will face as a result.”

The work is an abstract expression of darkness, tension, surprise, power, and anger. Full of action, colorful vocal effects, and recurring syncopation it has a cinematic quality that doesn’t relent and is sure to engage intermediate percussion students as well as audiences.

Truth or Consequence comes with a full, bound score and includes a CD-ROM containing an audio recording and all individual parts available for printing.

2 vibraphones
