Scherzo is a piece which describes emotions such as joy, anger, sadness and fear and personifies these through the percussion performers. Throughout our daily lives we can quickly switch between these different emotions, and our experiences are coloured by them. When we interact with each other, the way we express ourselves and perceive others is greatly influenced by our unstable emotional states, creating complex social dynamics.
The composer uses irregular rhythm, tempo and time signature relationships in order to recreate the characteristics of these interactions as emotions flow, spread, morph, and influence each other.
