Stalker
for percussion solo (1990)
13 minutes – no.5

The solo performer in Stalker is surrounded by 43 different percussion instruments, using various mallets and pedals to operate the musical installation. Stalker concentrates on sound rather then on rhythm. New percussion sounds were created by means of vertical configurations (“chords”). By treating these sound configurations as reoccurring fixed entities they become recognizable items in a stream of elements.

Stalker consists of ten movements of various short lengths. Movements 1 to 5 are played ‘attacca’ (without interruption), and so are movements 6 & 7, and 8 to 10.
