Program Notes

The emphasis is on the word "loco" with this frenetic concert work. The wind parts are wildly rhythmic and players have the opportunity to duel with the percussion section using their hands and feet.

- Program Note from publisher

The composer describes this work as a musical play on words, with emphasis on the “boo”, or “crazy” rhythms. The wind parts are extremely rhythmic and quick, even on static pitches, and wind players have the opportunity to duel with the percussion section using both their hands and feet. The frenetic energy and pace of this piece is contagious!
