  • Item Details

    Invisibles Pass By for percussion sextet is a unique experience for the players and the listeners - where 'ideas' of sound pop in and out of each other and then flit out to the edge of perception.

    Each part demands a very high level of musical maturity from the performer. Sometimes the parts have completely separate tempi, sometimes players are instructed to be completely out of time, and through this very complex structure there are many delicate, intricate conversations between other parts.

    The overall tempo never rises above quarter note = 66, and the piece lasts between 8 and 9 minutes. If you've got a percussion group looking for a real challenge, look no further.

    From the composer: Invisibles Pass By (2006) was commissioned and premiered by the Kunitachi College of Music Percussion Ensemble in Tokyo, Japan, on October 1, 2006 under the direction of Kazunori Momose. This composition is based on an illusion that spirits (or elves) appear for fun in our field of vision. The piece also utilizes a concept of musical simultaneity creating contrast between momentary events and stillness. Six players occasionally perform in separate tempos, as the music subtly dances from player to player with the nimbleness of imps. These spatial gestures of musical events create the illusion that "invisibles are passing by" in front of us. - Yo Goto
