Book of Changes

by Michael Bettine



‘Book of Changes’ was inspired by my interest in traditional Korean ‘Samul Nori’ drumming. According to Wikipedia, “The word samul means "four objects", while nori means "play”. ”While the traditional Samul Nori ensemble is a quartet, consisting of 2 drums and 2 gongs, I have doubled everything here to create an 8-piece ensemble.

The music here is not a direct copy of any particular traditional music, but is my own interpretation of the spirit of this fascinating music style.
