West



West for Pierrot and Percussion explores the Lewis and Clark expedition. The piece opens with them first seeing the Pacific Ocean and the Western US. The sound of the ocean is simulated with an ocean drum and extended wind techniques. A moving line between the instruments gives the feeling of moving on a journey. The expedition was a key factor in the future settling of the west. Sometimes one must journey out into the unknown to see what is out there.
