PERCUSSION TRIO NO. 1: HENRI’S WRITER- The title refers to an automaton built in 1805 by Henri Mailladet, a Swiss clockworks maker. The automaton depicted a young boy who could draw and write poems. This piece has a feeling of “clockworks” about it, hence the title. Only 8 instruments are needed for this piece, as most are shared; so only one of each is necessary. The instruments needed are: Player 1- Vibraphone, Xylophone, Jam Blocks, Shaker. Player 2- Jam Blocks, Drum Set, Xylophone, Vibraphone. Player 3- Ratchet, Timpani, Shaker, Xylophone, Tam Tam. The first part is based on a melodic ostinato which is passed between the parts. The second part begins with a jaunty theme which is varied throughout the movement and is displaced rhythmically. The final coda is unmistakable as the conclusion of the work.
