An Arresting Development as Police Drummer Finishes Concerto for D'Drum and the DSO
This is what he told The Wall Street Journal a few days ago:
What's up next for you?The piece is set to premiere next year. At which point Sting and Stewart may or may not be speaking again.
Right now, I'm writing a concerto for gamelan for the Dallas Symphony Orchestra. It's the magic music of Bali. The whole island is about art and the music really stands out. The gamelan is a row of bells that are pitched. They create beautiful music, but many of the notes don't exist on western keyboards. The Dallas Symphony has a bunch of Bali heads; D'Drum, they call themselves. I have to figure out something for the orchestra to do.
