  • Additional Information:

  • CONFRICATIO (2001) was written for the Four Gallon Drum percussion ensemble in association with the Vancouver Composers Collective. This composition is the first piece Derek has written since starting a Ph.D in composition at the State University of New York at Buffalo. It employs superball mallets and proportional notation, a slight off take from his previous works in an attempt to free his music from previous self imposed limitations. Based on a walk along the shores of Lake Erie, the composition transforms the experience into a sound world of rubbed percussion.
