Program Notes Double Take was written in the spring of 2008. It is a very groove-oriented multi-percussion duet. The original inspiration for the piece came from listening to other multi-percussion works such as Trio per Uno by Nebojša Zivkovic and Cadance for Two by Andy Pape. I decided that I wanted to write something along those lines that would show off a little more of my style. The setup of the piece is almost a mirror image with the bass drum being the focal point, hence the title, Double Take. The piece has different contrasting sections that use some interesting interplay between the players. There is also an open solo section for both players. Double Take is a piece that should be very enjoyable to players and audiences alike.
