For Hi-Hats

'For Hi-Hats' was premiered July 2017 at the So Percussion Summer Institute by the awesome students Joe Berry, Sam Gohl, Clark Hubbard, and Christian Hughes. Above is the video of the premiere.

The defining feature of the hi-hat is the pedal opening and closing the two cymbals. This gives both the ability to control the resonance of the instrument and the duration of notes. In ‘For Hi-Hats’ I explore both of these abilities through the framework of simple arithmetic processes creating tightly choreographed rhythmic coordination between the four performers.
