"TICK TALK" Premiere

Evan Chapman performing my percussion piece, Tick Talk! Tick Talk is on Evan's mind-bending 2020 album, Caustics, and it's for kick drum, effected snare, and accompanying audio. The snare has a contact mic running it through distortion [an Earthquaker Devices pedal] and the accompanying audio is a glitchy "tick talk" track I made. To get the clock sounds, I sampled the 16 clocks that hang on my bedroom wall and made beats with the ticks. Then I recorded clock onomatopoeia and made beats out of my spoken words. So many thanks to Evan for asking me to write for him and for absolutely slaying it! E-mail me if you're interested in the score.
