  • Item Details

    Odyssey by Jay Kennedy is a multi-percussion concerto with percussion sextet. This work has four movements, all of which were inspired by different paintings that the composer thought to draw inspiration from. The soloist is constantly battling against the ensemble through the movements which showcase a variety of styles.

    Each movement has a unique sound like the metallic wave of sounds in the first movement. The free, flowing, and more instrumentally subtle second movement which ends with a vibraphone solo. The third movement which features most more exotic instrumentation. And the final movement that is the prime opportunity for the soloist to showcase his/her virtuosity and improvisation skills.

    Odyssey is an ambitious work for any ensemble but will give players the opportunity to experience a great deal of musical contrast that allows them to use their imagination and creativity to really perform the piece.

    Notes from the composer: "The initial stimulus for Odysseywas a series of paintings, primarily done by painters from the Northwest United States. I had viewed these paintings over a period of about three years and some of them had a lasting impact on me. This piece reflects a vivid and inaccurate memory of some of those paintings. Movements 1 and 3 combine somewhat quirky observations of two paintings with loose interpretations of dance rhythms.
