Yola my Blues away (2014)

For Snare Drum and Backing Track, 20 minutes

This is one out of many pieces I made based on the snare drum roll (see also "etwas runder" and
"for six snare drums"). The performer plays snare drum rolls varying in duration and dynamics,
divided by pauses. A loudspeaker is placed behind the player, but all the sounds coming out of it are
covered by the sound of the drum, or almost covered. The listener can never be sure, are the sounds
I'm hearing coming out of the speaker, the drum or my imagination? Did I hear children laughing?
A blues singer? Bells?
