This piece was commissioned by percussionist Jacob Ramirez, a studio colleague at Baylor, for the final recital in a series of concerts he prepared over his years of undergraduate study. It is a spirited virtuostic piece in one movement that is based on three elements: 1.) a series of three chords presented in the introduction, 2.) the first melody which appears after the initial cadenza, 3.) and the interval of a perfect fourth. Versions are available with Orchestra accompaniment and a version utilizing a Piano and 5 percussionists.

This title is temporarily unavailible.
