Video from the world premiere performance of SPIEL, a concerto for solo percussion, electronics, and wind ensemble. Cast in four movements (Diatribe; Echo Chamber; Crestfallen; Contravention), this piece is an electrifying depiction of the volatility and dramatics found in present day online interactions — a timely and relevant piece.

This piece works well for residencies at universities, particularly those that might center on electroacoustic music. Combined with a solo recital, master class, and clinic, a performance of SPIEL is a great way to finish off a multi-day residency at a school of music.
