excerpts from the second movement, glimpse, featuring Eric and Tim Shuster of Steady State during rehearsal.
Unsteady is a two-movement commission by Steady State for two percussionists. dirt, for woodblocks and snare drums, explores the friction that results from different degrees of time slippage, from a slight friction to a major rupture. The second movement, glimpse, uses prepared vibraphone to create an ambient world full of unexplored colors. Unsteady is approximately 30 minutes. The two movements can be played as separate, standalone pieces (each is approximately 15 minutes). Score available here.
