Ron Mazurek In Search of ... for Percussion and Electronic Sound
Program Notes by the composer:"In Search Of . . .
for Percussion and Electronic Sound is based on a classic in Zen literature entitled In Search of the Missing Ox. In Buddhist literature, the ox is likened to one’s own true nature. To search for the ox is to investigate this true nature. The sounds of the electronic sound are juxtaposed and superimposed with acoustic qualities of the varied percussion. The percussion consists of metallic, wooden, and both tuned and untuned membraphones. The shape of the work can be likened to the fusion of ten Chinese vignettes in which each depicts a short literary or visual work. In Search of . . . has been recorded by Peter Jarvis."
