New Work: “A Rhythm Method”

A Rhythm Method from Wes Stitt on Vimeo.

Thinking about the clock-like rotation of the elements in “TimePiece,” I selected a solo drum phrase from the music video for Rush’s “Mystic Rhythms,” doubled it, phased it, and set it turning around itself. The effect to me is something like an amusement park ride slowly breaking down, though most people who’ve seen it mention Tommy Lee’s (of Motley Crüe) rolling drum kit from the ’80s.
