    There is absolutely nothing gentle about Michael Burritt's The Doomsday Machine. Inspired by Burritt's personal favorite episode of Star Trek, this piece is a whirlwind of notes between four players on wooden, metal, and membraned instruments. As was his intention, this work is extremely intense and just explodes off the stage, making it a real treat for audiences and players alike.

    Program Notes from the Composer: "The Doomsday Machine is named after an episode of Star Trek, my favorite science fiction series of all time. The 'Doomsday Machine' is an enormous weapon, both in size and strength, that was left adrift in space. This war machine was capable of destroying whole planets and was discovered, of course, by Captain Kirk and his crew. The Enterprise ultimately conquered the 'Doomsday Machine' by feeding it another star ship that was set to self destruct. My 'Doomsday Machine' is meant to be an aurally and visually captivating work that explodes a multitude of wood, metal, and membraned sounds in an explosively energetic dance.
