Program Notes

Two differently pitched woodblocks wonderfully mimic the sound of a ticking clock throughout the piece. By establishing a perfectly regular "tick-tock" at the opening, it draws attention to brief moments of syncopation that occur; creating a whimsical and comic effect that reflects the composer's sense of humor.
