Aboriginal Dreams is a multi-movement work beautifully scored for 13 players. The first movement, Ritual, is introduced with powerful triplets and works into a sixteenth feel often breaking into passages of syncopated unison rhythms. The second movement, Rain, starts gently and ripples with fast layered triplets ending as gently as it starts. The third movement is called Sacred Earth, Sacred Sky and has a peaceful, relaxed character loaded with rich harmonies supported by clever cymbal effects. Pitubi Dance uses bursts of thirty-second-notes and hand clapping to enhance the groove. Fire starts with an out-of-meter timpani solo and explodes into a fast, primal melody that surges forth to a huge four-note ending. If you only put one percussion ensemble piece on your program, make it this one!
