About

Composed at the request of Ney Rosauro, 'HAND TO HAND' is a direct acknowledgement of the influence of certain popular music styles in my music. These are however rather subtly articulated: only occasionally breaching the musical surface to be quickly re-assimilated into the texture. 'HAND TO HAND' was commissioned by the University of Miami Percussion Ensemble with funding from Creative New Zealand.
