from the PREFACE
For most percussionists, the triangle is a familiar instrument that is played frequently; yet, there is very little solo/recital repertoire for it. Though the triangle has been played for centuries, in modern times it is rarely encountered outside of an ensemble context. It is from this dichotomy that Sounds, Shapes, and Synergy evolved. This collective work began with three goals; to contribute repertoire; to propel the triangle in a solo/recital context; and to create modern music for an ancient instrument.
Sounds, Shapes, and Synergy began with my asking seven composers to write a solo/recital work that featured triangle/s as the predominant instrument. After several months of writing, composers came through with results that far exceeded my expectations. I am grateful to each of them for their synergy, and for their artistic inventiveness.
I encourage all percussionists to explore these works. It is my hope that these pieces will expand awareness of the musical capabilities of the triangle, and contribute meaningful repertoire where so little previously existed.
