Sean Friar - Burn Off - samuel z solomon

Burn-Off
a fanfare for percussion quartet with babies
by Sean Friar

Commissioned and Premiered by Line C3
Pregones Theater
Bronx, NY
March 7, 2012 

Program note:
I’ve spent the past six months living in a communal environment with many new families with young children. Being a 20-something year-old grad student who spent the majority of the previous year living alone in a basement, I am finding the constant whirl of children racing through the area to be a delightful but enormous change of pace. This piece – a combination of naïve and simple material with frenetic and propulsive energy – takes the form of a 3-minute sugar-rush, and seems to capture something of their wide-eyed, bursting-at- the-seams vivacity.
